Hi i've seen many people with this problem and i have found a solution.

The problem is that mutt will not provide the correct return adress.

Some people say that the solution is to provide a
Code:

from=me@domain.com

in .muttrc but this is a crappy solution.

My solution is to provide

Code:

set nouser_from


in /etc/mutt/Muttrc

This will force mutt to not add a from field allowing Postfix to provide it. Postfix happens to provide the correct one.

Happy mailing
