I've been trying to figure out if this is a new "feature" or if there is an issue with my configuration. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop with Postfix as MTA. My smtp (as opposed to smtpd) configuration follows that outlined in Jeremy's excellent response here:
I am able to successfully relay mail through [smtp.gmail.com]:587; however, on the receiving end, the from: address shows: "[my_gmail_username]@gmail.com" instead of "[my_user]@[my_domain]".
Would greatly appreciate any hints or tips; in this instance, my Google skills have failed me!
I think they've always done this, even when you've configured your gmail to send from other domains. As far as I know, the only way around this is to switch to using Google Apps, which is free if you just use the standard edition. The problem with this is that it means you have to change your MX records so that google handles all of your incoming mail, and it is only free for up to 50 users.
