Question How to specify "myorigin" for virtual domains in postfix???


i'm running postfix server under RHEL and I have created virtual alias domain in my postfix. At receiving end there is no problem as I mapped the virtual alias users to local UNIX account. While sending mail from this virtual user, domain specified in myorigin parameter is getting appended to sender address. But I want the domain in sender address should be the virtual domain that will be more transparent to end users.
Any idea about how to achieve this??

Thanks a lot...

The usual way is to let the mail client write the return address. Otherwise, maybe you can make use of canonical.
