Many "Received: from" in header.

    I have just installed ISPConfig3 using the "The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 9.04 [ISPConfig 3]".

    Everything works great but my mail source looks like this when sending mail using the smtp-server:

    Is it possible to remove some of the "Received: from"-stuff? I cant see why the information about localhost and should be there?

    Thunderbird and AVG-adds some local stuff. :)

    One more thing.
    I have two IPs. I have used the right IP in ISPConfig but Postfix seems to use the other one:
    Received: from (HELO ([])

    If i put smtp_bind_address = i get "Jun 20 01:13:49 server1 amavis[1471]: (01471-02) (!)DENIED ACCESS from IP, policy bank '' " in mail.log.

    What now? :) Thanks!
