It seems that a restart of the mailhost resolve the problem. I don`t exactly know
what happend, but every thing work fine now.
and here is the answered I got :
from firstname.lastname@example.org (John Hearns - System Manager)
You need to change sendmail.subsidary.cf such that the From field is the
local host. Look for the line:
DlFrom $g $d
and fix it up so that it uses the "correct" name. You may want to pick up
a copy of the O'Reilly sendmail nutshell "bat" book for more info -- the
specifics depend on your sendmail.cf file.

The sendmail.subsidary.cf of your workstations is
not stripping off the host part and replacing it
with the overall domain.
Do a 'diff' on both files to see the differences.
from firstname.lastname@example.org (Robert Tag)
Please post your aliases file in /etc for that will help
diagnose the problem.
Also if there is a different constradiction in OS'S that may
be giving you that problem.
Are you running OWLM ???
