You should add (or mofidy appropriately) the following to your
.pinerc file:

    default-composer-hdrs=From: Giorgos Keramidas <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>,

The allow-changing-from feature allows editing of the From: header for
all outgoing messages when enabled, and the default-composer-hdrs sets
some of the headers for your outgoing messages to reasonable defaults.

No, not really.

Use sockstat(1).

        $ sockstat -l4 | grep :25
        root     sendmail   445   4  tcp4   *:25                  *:*

As long as "gschenk" is your username, this is fine.

It's not difficult.  You should also check the FreeBSD Handbook.
Especially the chapter about mail...
