    Hi everyone,
    I have a server with ISPCOnfig 2.2.1
    Everytime I sent an email I always have one problem.
    Let's say I send it from soimeuser@firstdomainihave.com
    When someone will receive it - FROM tag is fine, but if they open Mail
    Even though sometimes it will put correct domain there (postfix) - it's kinda random.
    How can I fix this?

    Do you have an A-Record for mail.myfirstdomain.com pointing to your server IP?
    How many IP's do you have?

    I do have an A record.
    I have 2 IPs... well actually 3 - but ISPConfig doesn't know about third one as it's not used for Apache at all. It's for nginx, totally insolated from ISPConfig.

    Sending of mail is not related to apache or ISPConfig itself, it is managed by postfix. Postfix automatically uses the las IP address added to your system to send email. Postfix knows all your IP addresses, even the addresses not configured in ISPConfig.

    You can bind postfix to a specific IP for sending mails with this configuration directive in main.cf:

    smtp_bind_address = 192.168.0.1

    The IP address is always the same. The one mail is coming out of.
    But it associates different domain name with every single time. And it does not pick up latest domain name that was added, nor latest IP that was added - it never used it - as I said, postfix doesn't know about it as it's not even in ifconfig.
    I'm not really sure what's going on with this. But it's weird :$

    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf (please strip out the comments)?
    What's the output of
    Code:
    hostname -f
    ?

    You don't have myhostname and mydomain in main.cf.
    What's the output of
    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    ?

    well, if I specify myhostname and mydomain it will always be the same for all different domains email is sent out from, right? I need it to be dynamic.
    If one user sends an email out from @domain1.com and other @domain2.com - they gotta be different.
    What do I make myhostname and mydomain to be in this case? And why ISPConfig didn't take care of that? I'm sure no one else experience my problem.

    You and your users must set the sender address in your/their email clients. It has nothing to do with the server.
