postfix configuration


Okie, I'm just finish configure my postfix. My postfix is MTA for my MUA Squirrelmail. I'm using Linux RedHat 9.0 OS.

Somehow I'm only able to send mail but not able to receive mail.

Plus I recognize when I send mail to a mailbox to such as Bellsouth.net or yahoo.com.. I see the header of the email state as user@localhost.mydomain.com. I want to change it to such as :

user@mydomain.com, and how do i do that?

And what configuration that I need to implement in the main.cf file for my MUA Squirrelmail to be able to receive mail from the outside source? Because at the moment I only can send mail.

Please help, and I thank You.

SquirrelMail relies on an IMAP server to intermediate your mail, I'd suggest using Maildir's in your Posfix main.cf and courier IMAP as they are a great pair

As for the @host.domain.com Check the corresponding entries in postfix's main.cf to find where to set these values:
hostname
domainname

Remember, after making any changes to main.cf to restart postfix:
postfix reload

Cool
