Running fedora. Using postfix, cyrus-imapd and cyrus-sasl. Every email account I create has the address instead of . I'm not familiar with this MTA as I usually use qmail/courier/vpopmail but this computer has to have this setup. Any suggestions, log files you need?

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I found this on the Postfix website.

What domain name to use in outbound mail

The myorigin parameter specifies the domain that appears in mail that is posted on this machine. The default is to use the local machine name, $myhostname, which defaults to the name of the machine. Unless you are running a really small site, you probably want to change that into $mydomain, which defaults to the parent domain of the machine name.

For the sake of consistency between sender and recipient addresses, myorigin also specifies the domain name that is appended to an unqualified recipient address.

Examples (specify only one of the following):

myorigin = $myhostname (default: send mail as "user@$myhostname")
myorigin = $mydomain (probably desirable: "user@$mydomain")
