You can put: set [EMAIL PROTECTED] into your ~/.muttrc which should help, but yes, the general solution is to use sendmail's Masquerade feature. > In one attempt to get things working, I edited freebsd.mc in a couple of > places.

Try this in your `hostname`.mc. Don't leave a space before the 'dnl' after those entries, and make sure you get the quoting right. With m4(1) you need to use quotes like `this', not like 'this': MASQUERADE_AS(`socal.rr.com')dnl define(`SMART_HOST', `smtp-server.socal.rr.com')dnl In case your screen font doesn't make the distinction clear, the first quote mark ` is character 96, and the second quote mark ' is character 39 -- see ascii(7) for the whole table.
