Ghost mail with domain name

Hello,

Just installed ans created my account in my VPS and when I create my account i have received an email from
No-reply@my.domain.name.com

And just wondering How they send me an email from my server and with my domain name ?

Thank you

Hey @Senseikaii :wave:

The reason Ghost can do something like this is because that’s how email was originally designed - anyone can technically send email as someone else. You might have heard the term “spoofing” before, and that’s when someone sends an email pretending to be another person.

There have been some additional systems developed to protect your domain from being spoofed, most notably DKIM, SPF, and DMARC. When you sign up with an email service provider (like Mailgun, SendGrid, etc.), they might provide you with instructions on securing your domain.

It looks like the default ghost email address for transactional email is no-reply@{{site-url}}, which is why you got an email from there.

Hope this helps! :slight_smile:
