Couier IMAP Server


I'm not sure if this is in the right forum.

I have a Couier IMAP server

Its setup as Fetchmail > Postfix > IMAP > Squirrelmail

Fetchmail picksup my emails from a POP3 server and then I use squirrelmail or Outlook to read/write my mail.

My problem is when I send mail from squirrel or Outlook the received email comes from

Home is my login.

What I want it to come from is my ISP email address ie

I looked at postfix readme + google etc.

Is it MX records / alias and if so how exactly do you set it up.

Any help would be great
