Default postfix setup

not really a freebsd question but anyway..

I have just installed and configured postfix and managed to get it to send mails to the outer world. but my mail comes as jimmy@mail.domain.com but naturally I want it to say jimmy@domain.com. Do you know where to change this?

I have not setup so I can get mail, but thats what I do in the alias file i guess? Should I just type in which email goes to which user? like jimmy@domain.com: jimmy

or whats the syntax?

thankful for help!

Yeah I have followed it but can´t seem to get it work fully. I am able to send mail to my hotmail account but I can´t reply. I think I have not set up the aliases right.

If I have a user called jimmy on my computer and want mails transported to this user from jimmy@domain.com how do I go about? I have tried setting in /etc/aliases like this:
jimmy: jimmy@localhost

shouldnt´then incoming mail to jimmy@domain.com be redirected to him?

Okay you can ignore the above, I just forgot specify where the aliase file is.

Now I can both send and recieve mail! :-)

My only problem is now that I can only recieve mails when my host name is in the adress like this: jimmy@mailserver.domain.com
If I mail to jimmy@domain.com the mail never gets through.
And the same goes when I mail out, the mailadress goes like jimmy@mailserver.domain.com

do anyone know if its something I should set in postfix or something that has to do with my mx pointer?

Do you have this:
Code:
myhostname = mail.domain.tld
myorigin = domain.tld
mydestination = $myhostname, $mydomain, localhost.$mydomain
in you main.cf?

Thanx!! that solved half the problem, when I changed the mydestination value I am able to recieve mail sent to jimmy@domain.com

Okay so now the only problem left is that when I mail out it says jimmy@mailserver.domain.com

myorigin is set to domain.com

any ideas?

you can (have to) recompile postfix with dovecot support.
