postfix screwup
 
OK complete newbie to linux.
I have setup postfix and dovecot on centos.
everything works... but my email addresses are username@mail.domain.com instead of username@domain.com.
I have searched high and low for my screwup. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Taylor

if you really own @domain.com then you should check if you have that domain added to the mydestination config setting line in your main.cf ..

It should look something like:
Code:

mydestination = domain.com, localhost.localdomain, localhost
if you post your main.cf i can have a look at it.

more info
 
OK below you will find my main.cf file. Also server is a remote running Centos 5.4 64bit. Postfix/dovecot with Roundcube for webmail. I know the main.cf is wrong, i can send a test email but when trying to reply to the test email it gets returned. Makes me wonder if it's Dovecot after typing that.

Oh i followed The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.2 install instructions for Postfix and Dovecot.

You must set the correct sender address in your email client.

Please explain further as it does the same thing if I use mail from the shell.

If you mail from the shell and find that the email is "xxx@mail.domain.com" (instead of xxx@domain.com), then please check your server host name setting.

If you mail from the webmail interface (e.g. webmail / roundcube) and find that the email is "xxx@mail.domain.com" (instead of xxx@domain.com), then you have not yet set up your sender email in your webmail.
