I just set up an internal mail server for my office using Postfix, Dovecot and Squirrelmail. It works great except for one tiny problem. When I send mail, I address it to user@myoffice (no .com, .net, etc) and it works perfectly. However, somewhere in my work, I screwed up and for whatever dumb reason put myoffice.net somewhere in there and now the return-path always shows up as firstname.lastname@example.org instead of just user@myoffice. Does anyone know how to fix the return-path so that when someone clicks reply it goes to user@myoffice? I've Googled and searched here without finding my answer, apologies if it's out there and I've just failed to see it. Rest assured I have done a couple hours of searching before finally asking for help.
I don't know what your servers FQDN is but regardless if it's only internal and doesn't have a .tld, it's still a factor. So your config looks like it's missing some parameters where you problems appears to be coming from:
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, it's still doing the same thing. However, I found a work-around I hadn't thought of. Something I should have thought of all along. I just need to go into the options in the squirrelmail and it has a place where you can set your reply-to address. It isn't perfect, as I'll have to go into every users options and do this, but at least it will work. I just can't figure out where the ".net" is being pulled from to put in the return-path. Very strange.
Oh I didn't know you were using Debian or Ubuntu. Yes, '/etc/mailname' is the problem and Postfix reads straight from that file. I still recommend adding or adjusting your main.cf as posted above but glad it was sorted out and everything's working.
