This is the summary to :
When I send a mail message the FROM field shows the name of my machine,
I have the sendmail configured to accept mails delivered to the domain
like this "email@example.com".
Where can I change this ?! I have tryied on the mail client (netscape,
eudora, etc) and didn't work !
Thank you for the quick answers to:

3) How do I change firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com?
a) Again from the FAQ of sendmail V8:
* How do I make all my addresses appear to be from a single host?
Using the V8 configuration macros, use:
This will cause all addresses to be sent out as being from
the indicated domain.
If you also want to masquerade the recipients, use
But be careful and read cf/README first about possible problems!
b) For Sun's sendmail (prior to version 8):
Look for a rule (should be in ruleset 22) like
R$+<@$+>$* $@$1<@$2.$m>$3 tack on our
and change it to
R$+<@$+>$* $@$1<@$m>$3 tack on our
if you have correctly defined $m.
If you have SunOS 5.x (with x < 5; aka Solaris 2.x) you also have to
change the following rule:
R$+ $@$1<@$w.$m> tack on our full
R$+ $@$1<@$m> tack on our
If you have any corrections/additions/suggestions, please let me know.
These questions and answers are also available on
which contains some more hints about sendmail.
Hope this help,

In your /etc/sendmail.cf file you may have:
# file containing names of hosts for which we receive email
This means you change it in the /etc/sendmail.cw file:
just add a line to that file with the name of the domain you want to

Hi Mr Joao
I think you have to configure the sendmail.cf file only for this.
See the section Header formats and change the
?From: variable to ur domain name variable ( usually $D)
hope it helps
