Hi changeed the name isp1.example.com in the file /etc/mailname to isp1.monkisoft.com, which is the correct domain.

Now, all outgoing emails have correct from address.

Default Problem with from address

See I have used gmail smtp i.e. smtp.gmail.com

and then I used sasl_passwd file to store

smtp.gmail.com usernameassword

now in from address of all sent emails I get the username that is mentioned as above in sasl_passwd file

I want to change it because if I don't change it all my three different users have same from address in all the emails sent.

can any body please suggest any ideas on resolving this problem

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

#Added this line
smtp_tls_security_level = may

I also found a problem in my sasl passwd file:

[smtp.live.com] 'useraccountname:my password'

However, I still have the following problems. If I send an email from a ssh shell, the email from address is
I can't figure out where isp1.example.com comes from. If I send email using squirrel mail from an account created with ispconfig(3), the email "from" domain is correct.

Also, in the mail.log file, I get this "warning" for each mail that is relayed:
Aug 27 10:30:58 isp1 postfix/smtp[26534]: certificate verification failed for smtp.live.com[]:25: untrusted issuer /C=US/O=GTE Corporation/OU=GTE CyberTrust Solutions, Inc./CN=GTE CyberTrust Global Root
Not sure how to get rid of that, not sure if I want since mail sending does work now.

Anyone knows where to set example.com to my correct domain?

Well, this just got the thinbg working. Of course, after adding the relay data on ISPConfig server config area.

Best regards!
