Postfix Question

Hi there,

I have been unsuccessfully trying to configure Postfix to serve as a local SMTP server on my standalone linux box. The reason being is I cannot use my current email address to send emails using my ISP's SMTP server. It rejects any mail without the correct domain in the "From Header" of the email.

I used to use a standalone SMTP server on Windows XP but recently migrated to Linux. I would appreciate it if anyone here could point me into the right direction. If this cannot be done then how do I go by masking the "From Header" to include my ISP's domain name?

Thanking you guys in advance.

What mail client program are you using? And what distro?

How did you configure/compile/install postfix? Did you read the README associated with the file?

Can you give us some more info?

Without going off the tracks too far, I remember Webmin had a setup for Postfix. It makes it easier to start off with, then you could have a look at the config files to see how it was set up.
