I already changed my root alias to my email so that whenever a email is sent to root, i get a copy of that. Which is perfectly working fine. Now, when i receive an email, the From address is : root @ alpha.myserver.com.

alpha.myserver.com is my server's host name. I just wanted to know if I can change this FROM email address? something like root@mydomain.com?

My server is a cPanel/WHM + CloudLinux server.


  • Natively this is perfectly possible. Whether it's possible through cPanel I can't say. – roaima Aug 24 '19 at 17:20
  • If you just ignore your webpanel and edit your postfix config, it's possible, however, I have no idea if your webpanel will just overwrite the configuration. – jsbillings Aug 30 '19 at 22:32
