Angry sendmail error

I am working with a perl cgi script which will send the contents of a form to a specific address. I know the form works because I also have output sent to a text file. The problem is this: sendmail is not sending the messages…here is a sample error message from the mail log:

Dec 21 14:56:52 dhcppc4 postfix/pickup[3570]: 9276E2203B: uid=65534
Dec 21 14:56:52 dhcppc4 postfix/cleanup[3917]: 9276E2203B:

Dec 21 14:56:52 dhcppc4 postfix/smtp[3919]: 9276E2203B:

5.1.8 <nobody@linux.local>... Domain of sender address nobody@linux.local
does not exist (in reply to MAIL FROM command))
Dec 21 14:56:52 dhcppc4 postfix/cleanup[3917]: D680E2203C:
Dec 21 14:56:52 dhcppc4 postfix/qmgr[3571]: D680E2203C: from=<>, size=2149,

Dec 21 14:56:52 dhcppc4 postfix/local[3921]: D680E2203C:
to=<root@linux.local>, orig_to=<nobody@linux.local>, relay=local, delay=0,
status=sent (mailbox)

how can I change the nobody@linux.local to a valid account? That is, is there a cnfiguration that I am forgetting? Thanks in advance!!
