    Hi,
    Whenever I send mail it has the following header which takes the mail to spam
    Code:

    This is my first email on debian postfix after installing configuring it.
    It was easy. See you
    Now I want Received: from localhost.localdomain (localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]) to be replaced by mysite.org and then check if mail reaches the inbox.

    I have postfix running on debian etch. How do I do the required changes
    Code:
    telnet mysite.org 25
    Trying 203.54.237.227...
    Connected to mysite.org.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 mail.mysite.org ESMTP Postfix (Debian/GNU)
    mail from:<[email protected]>
    250 2.1.0 Ok
    rcpt to:<[email protected]>
    data
    To: [email protected]
    From: [email protected]
    Subject: Hey my first email
    This is my first email on debian postfix after installing configuring it.
    It was easy. See you
    554 5.7.1 <[email protected]>: Relay access denied
    554 5.5.1 Error: no valid recipients
    221 2.7.0 Error: I can break rules, too. Goodbye.
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    but
    debian:~# telnet localhost 25 works fine (send mail atleast to spam!!!)

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

    How did you set up your email account?

    The emails are configured using ispconfig and I use swiftmailer to send the mails

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    hostname
    and
    Code:
    hostname -f
    ?

    What's the output of
    Code:
    postconf -d | grep localhost.localdomain
    ?

    I just edit /etc/hostname. and now in the email header it shows
    Code:
    Received: from [208.8.237.227] (mysite.org [127.0.0.1])
    	by mail.mysite.org (Postfix) with ESMTP id 48EB44D00FE
    	for <[email protected]>; Mon, 29 Dec 2008 15:07:06 +0000 (UTC)
    
    After changing /etc/hostname localhost.localdomain was replaced by mysite.org but the ip still is 127.0.0.1 which i think should be 208.8.237.227

    my /etc/hosts is
    Code:
    127.0.0.1       mysite.org  localhost.localdomain   localhost debian.4.x86_64
    The /etc/resolve.conf gives

    Code:
    nameserver 127.0.0.1
    search vpsfarm.com
    
    Is this ok?

    I think it shows 127.0.0.1 because you're sending the email directly from the server using a webmail application. This should be ok.
