Is "host" of "host.domain.tld" the host Postfix is running on?

Which header is it that Postfix is mungeing?

In your postfix main.cf, try putting

myorigin = $mydomain

(it defaults to host.domain) and see if the result suits you better.
This is a global change; it will effect rewrites applied to other
mail headers, too.

Especially check mail with unqualified local "To:" and
"From:" in the headers at submit time.  When I'm working with
questions like this, I often keep test cases in a files that look
sort of like like

To: me
From: somebody


(completely empty line between the "From: header and the body), then

/usr/sbin/sendmail -t file1
/usr/sbin/sendmail -t file2

(or wherever Postfix's "sendmail" lives) in a script to send my
batch of test cases.  Watch the appropriate syslog file with
"tail -f" to see what's happening, in real-time, to the test cases.
