    hi,
    I'm new to postfix and am trying to setup a new backup mx server to another postfix server hosting hundreds of domains.
    I've got it working, receiving mail ( testing from cli using telnet ) and forwarding it to the main server, but using squirrelmail to look at the mail on server, the from address is unknown, if I use the pop3 connector from gmail to collect the mail from the server, then in gmail I get the to address in the from field, and a blank to address. but everything looks fine in the logs.

    telnet send mail:
    220 mail3.scl.co.uk ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
    EHLO gmail.com
    250-mail3.scl.co.uk

    i know i still need to sort out the tls, i'll do that once I've got this problem fixed.
    does anyone know why the to/from fields are getting messed up in the mail client?, and how do i fix it?
    at the moment i don't have any idea where to even start on this one.
    thanks.
    lee.
