    Ubuntu send mails from address

    Hello,

    I just setup postfix to send emails, but when I send a mail I get it as from root@mylocalhost.com

    How can I change this from? I bought a domain name and I would like to be able to send mails as support@mydomain.com

    Thank you.

    The answer is in here http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGU....html#myorigin

    I have to change the myorigin variable.

    I will try it, thank you.

    This is good to change the domain name, but how can I specify the whole address I want? for example support@mydomain.com ??? I was only able to get root@mydomain.com

    Thank you.

    How are you sending mail?
    Nothing is ever easy, but if it is difficult you must be doing it wrong.

    With wordpress, I think it manages all that for me and no need to virtual users... and multiple domains. Is that correct?
