Question sendmail to fake sender?

This is what I'd like to be able to configure.

Configure sendmail as a pass-through smtp server to my yahoo smtp server. All emails sent through sendmail would go through yahoo to email addresses specified in the alias file. Also, most importantly, all emails would appear to come from no matter what/who sent them on my system.

i.e.: if I send an email to user bob on my system by 'mail -v bob' it would send an email to an alias, instead of bob@localhost.localdomain and the 'from:' would say instead of root@localhost.localdomain...

Any ideas...
