Wrong 'From' address on mail received from sendmail


I have sendmail configured under RH9 so it successfully sends e-mail via a relay server. However, when mail sent to username arrives at its destination, it has a 'From:' address of username@localhost.localdomain , instead of . I have looked everywhere, but can't figure out how to change this. Can anyone make any helpful suggestions? Thanks

Do you use webmail?

If yes you should set reply mail address on webmail properties or options

No, I don't use webmail. This is a sendmail configuration issue.
