Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The hostname of my PC is dev.ivanatora.info. It has an A record in the DNS zone for ivanatora.info. I have a Postfix installation running here. I'm sending mail to outside, but the From: field is firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com. Here is part of main.cf:
irishbitte, that doesn't seem to work. Mail is still sent with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another strange issue is this. I'm trying to send mail to Exim system. The Exim is configured with "verify callout" - it tries to call back the sender to see if local user exist at my side. Using pine and user root I'm able to send mail (there is another mail server at ivanatora.info, so the verification callout passes). But using sendmail from the command line fails. The message is delivered, but the verification callback does not pass. I'm running pine with default settings. Any idea why the sendmail binary won't work? Here is example session from maillog:

Sorry for double posting.
I've just checked with Wireshark (great debugging tool!) and I see pine sends the followin command:
MAIL FROM: <firstname.lastname@example.org>
While sending from commandline:
# sendmail email@example.com
Gives the following command:
MAIL FROM <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Ooohh, dumb me. I had user-domain=ivanatora.info in ~/.pinerc
So Postfix does really sends fine from @dev.ivanatora.info but the remote host have problems with "Temporary lookup failure". I will check the state of the MX records, becouse I have played a little with these and maybe I should wait DNS refreshing.
Added these lines to main.cf:
