do you mean setting up mecury mail or sending mail via php.

If you mean sending mail via php then use the piece of code.
[code=php:0]
$knowsender = "you@yourdomain.com";//must be a username known to the mail server
if ($ccaddress=="" || $ccaddress==" ") {
$header="From: $knownsender";

}else{
$header .="From: $knownsender\r\n";
$header .=" Cc: $ccaddress";
}
// $header.="Bcc: $bcaddress";

if (mail($mailtos, $subject, $message, $header)) {
echo "success";
include("contact.php");
}else{
echo "Your error";
include("contact.php");
}
?>[/code]
If you have configured the server right then you shouldn't have to change anything in the php.ini or httpd.conf. Just use this piece of code instead of the standard x-mailer format.

There is one draw back to this. You cannot send the mail with any additional headers(html mail). It will only work for text
