Postfix How To Change Sending IP Address To Specific IP Binding or Interface

I thought I'd post this becuase there is some bad information out there.  Some guides tell you to edit /etc/postfix/master.cf (-o smtp_bind_address=) but this doesn't work.  The same guide also says if you don't change it there you end up changing the listening IP/bind interface which is also not true.

Here is a simple and effective way to change Postfix's sending/binding/outgoing IP address (very important for reverse DNS and so mail servers don't block you):

vi /etc/postfix/main.cf

#add this option

smtp_bind_address=192.168.5.80

*Obviously change the 192.168.5.80 to the outgoing address you want to use for Postfix
