it's not a relaying denied thing.  i haven't looked into where acid 
grabs the "from:" field, but on my machine it tries to send mail as 
"www at ...274...".  i added "localhost" to sendmail's relay-domains file 
but no go.

my next step would be to change the "mail" directive in php.ini but i 
don't want to yet because other php stuff on this machine sends mail and 
they work fine.  i just need to find a good time window to try it real 

i'd try "sendmail -i -f etc..." instead of stock "sendmail" next because 
awhile ago when i searched for this solution i read in the archives that 
for someone "-f pepelopezenacidos at ...9532..." (replace 
"pepelopezenacidos at ...9532..." w/ the "from:" address you want to use) 

in, short, i'd be interested in seeing what fixes your mail from acid
