simple Postfix Problem.

I can send and receive emails on the lan just fine also I can receive emails from the internet however I'm unable to send emails to other people on different sites like I have narrowed down the problem in my maillog and it looks like when the other server trys to search for my dns it can't find it. My dns is registered with dyndns and for some reason when i send out emails postfix adds the name of my machine to the dyndns and screwing up the return address. How do i set up Postfix so when I send emails that only my registered dyndns shows up behind the "@" and not the name of my machine with the dns?

any response would be helpful thank you.

example of the email problem: somehow gets turned into I can't figure out how to fix this.

Oct 26 01:50:52 SYNapse postfix/pickup[392]: A2340D896F: uid=0 from=<>
Oct 26 01:50:52 SYNapse postfix/cleanup[543]: A2340D896F: message-id=<>
Oct 26 01:50:52 SYNapse postfix/qmgr[393]: A2340D896F: from=<>, size=622, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Oct 26 01:50:53 SYNapse postfix/smtp[545]: A2340D896F: to=<>,[], delay=1, status=bounced (host[] said: 553 5.1.8 <>... Domain of sender address does not exist (in reply to MAIL FROM command))
Oct 26 01:50:53 SYNapse postfix/cleanup[543]: ED2C9D8970: message-id=<>
Oct 26 01:50:53 SYNapse postfix/qmgr[393]: ED2C9D8970: from=<>, size=2696, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Oct 26 01:50:54 SYNapse postfix/smtp[547]: ED2C9D8970: to=<>, relay=none, delay=1, status=bounced (Name service error for type=A: Host not found)

I only want the from address when i send an email to say without it adding the name of my server (SYNapse) to it
