myhostname =
mynetworks =
myorigin = /etc/mailname
recipient_delimiter = +
relayhost =
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache
smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks,permit_sasl_authenticated,reject _unauth_destination
smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtpd_sasl_local_domain =
smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth
smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem

virtual_alias_domains = /etc/postfix/virtual/vhosts

Did you set the correct sender address in your email client?

No, i did it and it has the required domain name at the sender part thanks a lot!!!!!! : )
But when i send it from the web interface, domainname.tld/squirrelmail it still has the primary domain appended.

Do you think it might be related to the mail server i'm using? I don't know if I must set up a new mail server for that or if i can just use the older one (mail.1st_domain.tld) as the mail server.
thnx again.

You must also set the correct sender address in your webmail program.

ok i did that too, and that was quite stupid for me not to be able to do it my ownself.

Thnx a lot.
