have just found the solution use of header will do that, but getting an another problem, P.S. as anybody get mail it shows up like this as mail sent from daniweb
from DaniWeb IT Discussion Community
i used

$headers = 'From: Anything <admin@XYZ.com>' . "\r\n";

problem is am getting mails by :
from admin
is there anyone who can tell how can i write my own stuff instead of "DaniWeb IT Discussion Community" or "admin".

You can add headers as a 4th parameter of the mail function.
Try "From:xyz@maindomain.com\r\n\Reply-to:xyz@maindomain.com"

it worked, thanx, now problem am getting is it is showing up like this
from admin <admin@xyz.com> how can i customize "admin" to ANYTHING or ANYNAME i would like? so it would show up like from ANYTHING <admin@xyz.com>

as daniwebs' mails show like
from DaniWeb IT Discussion Community <community@daniwebmail.com>

i want to customize "DaniWeb IT Discussion Community " this field. how i made myself clear.
