Sendmail is a big, complex program ... I'm sure if you had the time,

all across the internet.
Considering the fact that you're using FreeBSD, I recommend the one
specifically written for FreeBSD in the Handbook.  I found this page
particularly useful:

You can do this with the "massquerading" feature of sendmail.
