It all depends on the email client they're using - you haven't really given us very many details. Do they send their email from the same PC as the server itself or something?
Ask them to make sure that they have correctly set the "From:" and "Reply To:" addresses in their application's configuration panel, and that should do the trick.



Ps. Welcome to LQ!!

Thanks for the reply,

No they send mail from other PCs', email clients vary from thunderbird to outlook etc.
I was wondering if there was a way for the mail server to reject any local mail with the incorrect from address.
