    I'm not sure if any of you ever tried this but I want to get rid of the IP address in the bounce message below the "The Mail System" part. The bounce.cf allows you to change the top part, but where do I change the bottom part? The reason is it shows my private IP instead of my domain name.

    I'm using postfix 2.4 configured it as a gateway server to my main. The stupid bounce messages keeps stamping the private ip of the main server but I want it to just stamp it with my domain name instead. Postfix bounce(5) doesn't say anything about changing the bottom part, only the header and body. Does anyone know how I can change that to say my domain name instead or even the public ip? I searched & searched but can't find anything on it. I might be searching the wrong key words. I don't know what other words to use.

    Thanks.

    What's in your /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    Here's my postconf -n

    Thanks for the help.

    Not sure if I should start a new thread but I'm also experiencing "mail for company.com loops back to myself" regardless if I use my own personal webmail except yahoo. Really strange :confused: It will bounce about looping from other sites except yahoo. I noticed it bounced a message from another person when I was testing it that's not on our network as well. I tried disabling amavisd and it still does the same, so my conclusion is my config. But what? I took out "smtpd_helo_required" & "helo_restrictions" but still no avail.:eek:

    Thanks topdog.

    I ended up reinstalling the os. I found it strange that over night, the main.cf just suddenly reconfigured itself. The postconf -n posted here was the one I reconfigured after it got messed up. I thought it would work fine if I copied the default and configure it but it just didn't work. When I telnet localhost and test mail, it worked fine but kept bouncing everything else except yahoo. After a fresh reinstall and configuration, it's working great now.

    So now I'm back to my original question. How do I change the bottom portion of the bounce message to not stamp my private ip but instead my public ip or domain name? Hope you can help falko.

    I finally got a chance to check out the link and continue with my test. The link you gave me, falko, is basically the same as what postfix has and doesn't say anything about the bottom part which spills out the ip. I want to change the ip but it doesn't tell how.

    Hope you or someone out there knows how.

    Thanks
