  1. Add the following line in /etc/postfix/ . All outgoing emails will have this address in the FROM field, but the name of the sender will not be modified. Replace <FQDN> with your fully qualified domain name.

    Code Block
    sender_canonical_maps = static:no-reply@<FQDN>

  2. To modify the name as well, you need to create a file in /etc/postfix/header_checks which contains this line:

    Code Block
    /^From:[[:space:]]+(.*)/ REPLACE From: "Your Name" <>

  3. Then run the following commands:

    Code Block
    cd /etc/postfix
    postmap header_checks
    postconf -e 'smtp_header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks'
    /etc/init.d/service postfix reload
