SLES 10 - Postfix mailer config - Return Path overwritten


A batch mailer is configured for a ReturnPath mailadmin@domain.com. When sent the ReturnPath is always overwritten to root@domain.com.

I have experimented in the main.cf file, but can't seem to find the value that would change it. I need this for bounce mail. The mails have to be directed to the mail server. This server can only send mail.

Where do I find that variable?

Why do you think it's postfix doing this? I rather doubt that it is. Note that Return path And Sender are different headers.

Perhaps you can lift the level of verbosity on the logs, but I doubt this will help.


That said, what do you have in sender_canonical_maps?

Also have you tried

masquerade_exceptions = root, mailadmin
