I would start here:

Q: The default mail domain for my user is always wrong, how can I set it?

A: To have openwebmail find the correct mail domain for the user,
you'd give it some hint.

For example, if the webmail url is

http://mail.server_1.com/cgi-bin/.....,

and you want the email for tom to be tom@virtual_1.com.

You can achieve this in either the following 2 ways:

1. create per user config file etc/users.conf/tom
and set option domainnames to virtual_1.com
2. create per domain config file etc/sites.cof/mail1.server_1.com
and set option domainnames to virtual_1.com


While 1 is only for the user tom, the method 2 has effect for all users
who logins with the url http://mail.server_1.com/cgi-bin/....
Looks like it can also be set on a per user basis in the personal configuration settings.

Great i have change the From Email Address as you mention in Personalize settings.its working good.

But the problem is that i have more then 200 Email Accounts .And its impossible to go every user account and Personalize the emails Settings of Open web mail.

we need to find out from which configuration file Open webmail is reading Default "Email From " myname@mail.domain.com .So i will change the value to myname@domain.com.

Plz help me as there are no more users working on openwebmail.

One thing more last month my email server crash and i recover it my old backup.
From recovering email server i have Copied my Old /var/www/* in New email server and don't run the

#execute /var/www/cgi-bin/openwebmail/openwebmail-tool.pl --init

Because if i initilize the above perl script it my be Refresh the Account information of my all users and i have to renter the POP3 Accounts settings.

You could always use Postfix to rewrite the addresses until you sort it out. See http://www.postfix.org/ADDRESS_REWRITING_README.html

I thought the Domain option for openwebmail I posted would do it for ALL users..

maybe I was mistaken

That's certainly what the link you posted says. Clearly I hadn't read this previously.

OP - in case you are wondering, it's the first link in farslayer's response.
