NAME

       CURLOPT_MAIL_FROM - SMTP sender address

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_MAIL_FROM, char *from);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  pointer  to a zero terminated string as parameter. This should be used to specify
       the sender's email address when sending SMTP mail with libcurl.

       An originator email address should be specified with angled brackets (<>) around it, which
       if not specified will be added automatically.

       If  this  parameter is not specified then an empty address will be sent to the mail server
       which may cause the email to be rejected.

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       blank
