I have the following header:

Received: (qmail 29951 invoked from network); 15 Apr 2010 09:43:04 +0300
Received: from ovbgr.static.otenet.gr (HELO it98d30b43ab75) (

I kindly ask your help on the following:
As you see the

Received: from ovbgr.static.otenet.gr (HELO it98d30b43ab75) (
by glamplan.com with SMTP; 15 Apr 2010 09:42:16 +0300

The user send it is in the ovb domain, however the header has a "by glamplan.com" that I cannot understand why this is there? Shouldn't be the same as the sender domain?

Thanks a lot for the help


RE: Qmail headers

This looks like glamplan.com is either the recipient domain or was a hop along the path.  Received: from ovbgr.static.otenet.gr (HELO it98d30b43ab75) (
by glamplan.com.  In other words, it was transmitted from  ovbgr.static.otenet.gr and to glamplan.com.

Note, the are DNS entries and can be totally different than what is created in the FROM and TO in the email data "headers".
