changing mail header

Hi to all,,,

This is the first message that I post it here

Q: How can I change the mail header to prevent my local mail name & IP ( locally) to be shown in the header , note that I use sendmail as mail relay
so when I examin the header it shows the Ip for mail relay and my local mail server , what the suitable way to solve this problem?

You need to DISCARD that message header ... if you would using postfix I'd suggest taking a look at header_checks ... is there a specific reason for using sendmail ?
