attached mail follows:

  Raymond Fagnon:

   In reply to your sendmail question: here is what works
 for me.

   Go to ruleset S11 (the sender rewrite rules) and change
 the rule

  R$=D $@$1<@$w> tack on my hostname

  R$=D $@$1<@$m>

  and then change the rule

  R$+ $@$1<@$k> tack on my mbox hostname


  R$+ $@$1<@$m>

  All you are doing here is changing the rewrite rules to use $m
  in place of $w and $k. This should change your from lines in
  outgoing mail to user@domain.
