Default User name rather than Real Name in mail header??


Over the past few days we have built our first ISPconfig box using Ubuntu 5.04 as a base. Many thanks for the How-To document

Last night we installed webmail which is the only interface we are using at this stage for email.

It appears to be working quite nicely other than one issue as follows :

The displayed name (From) is the user name rather than real name

ie. If Vim Fuego (vimf@badnews.com) sends an email to Colin Grigson (colin@somewhereelse.com), the message is displayed in Colin's inbox as having come from "vimf" rather than "Vim Fuego".

In the mail setup, all appears to be ok in that the Real Name is "Vim Fuego", mail address is "vimf@badnews.com", user name is also set to "vimf" (I have removed the user name prefix as it is only hosting for a small company).

I'm thinking that perhaps there is a configuration file we need to change? I'm guessing that for some reason postfix is using the user name rather than the real name?

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance
