Email error


When I try sending emails from my machine, I get an error saying that my "From: " is illegal. Its an obvious error cause mutt is using <user>@<machine nick> for the email address and the machine nick isn't the real address. Is there any way to change this other than changing the machines name? Thanks in advance.
