I use postfix for a while now, but it is not very well configured. Here is my problem :
Sorry if I ask some stupid question but I learn...

First the situation :
I've got one computer, a modem and a dial up connection. The hostname of my computer is takeda.
I choose a domain name
( historic : a honjin is like an hotel for the samurai warlords in the sengoku jidai, and takeda shingen is a famous warlord ) 
I haven't got any IP address because it's my provider ( who give me an IP, and it is different each time I connect to internet.

Secondly the problem :
When i write a mail, nobody can answer to my mail because the address is wrong :
my address is didbaba at
and on the mail there is "from didbaba at"               myorigin = in postfix/
but I do not find how to have "from : didbaba at", now I only have got "from : didbaba at"  

If I change my domain to, I've got "from : didbaba at" but I can't write to my friend at the address someone at

Third the solution :
Is the solution in IP_masquerading ? (maybe a stupid question)
