I've been running a hosting company for 11 years so I find that comment a little odd.
If you have a mailserver which hosts the domain "livezilla.com", you can send an email to that server with any "from:" address you wish, provided the recipient is firstname.lastname@example.org. We are not talking about relaying here.
Look, I'm SSH'd onto our server running the livezilla software. I want offline messages to go to support-at-titaninternet.co.uk and I'll pretend to be a user lee-at-sidc.co.uk:
[chat@titan-chat-1 /]$ telnet server01.exchange.titaninternet.co.uk 25 Trying 220.127.116.11... Connected to server01.exchange.titaninternet.co.uk (18.104.22.168). Escape character is '^]'. 220 server01.exchange.titaninternet.co.uk Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 6.0.3790.4675 ready at Fri, 18 Mar 2011 08:40:26 +0000 HELO chat.titaninternet.co.uk 250 server01.exchange.titaninternet.co.uk Hello [22.214.171.124] MAIL FROM: email@example.com 250 2.1.0 firstname.lastname@example.org....Sender OK RCPT TO: email@example.com 250 2.1.5 firstname.lastname@example.org DATA 354 Start mail input; end with

Now lets look at the message headers:
Microsoft Mail Internet Headers Version 2.0 Received: from chat.titaninternet.co.uk ([126.96.36.199]) by server01.exchange.titaninternet.co.uk with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.4675); Fri, 18 Mar 2011 08:41:39 +0000 From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Test Return-Path: email@example.com Message-ID:Now, if I do a offline message via the chat popup interface:

X-OriginalArrivalTime: 18 Mar 2011 08:45:17.0347 (UTC) FILETIME=[CE673F30]
What does this setting do anyway? I can find no difference.
Congratulations on a fantastic product by the way. Myself and all my staff have been very impressed.

It just doesn't do this if you use SMTP Mail, which would be our preferred option.
