thank you for the message.
Then how does one setup Postfix so that the first, originating IP is
indicated as, per example above, xyz.com or def.com and not
many-companies.com? I know this is done on mail systems but it eludes
me as to how. Would setting up virtual domains be the answer? I find
it unreasonable to expect that each domain has it's own dedicated IP
address which would translate into many physical servers for each
domain. These days everyone is using virtual domains and ip aliasing.
that's all I want to accomplish but fail to see how this can be done.
