Try dejanews, there is a one-way gateway to linux.debian.* groups

basically, lookup the definition of these transport options, take a
look at the lookup function and assemble it.

  driver = smtp                                                                 
  headers_remove = "sender:from"                                                
  headers_add = "Sender: ${lookup{$sender_ident}lsearch*{/etc/exim/addresses}\  
                  From: ${lookup{$sender_ident}lsearch*{/etc/exim/addresses}\   

With /etc/exim/addresses like

*	"Jor-el" <jorel@ibm.net>
jorel	"Jor-el" <jorel@ibm.net>
joe	"Joe Doe" <joe@somewhere.com>

This will take care of rewriting the From and Sender header. Now we
just have to also fix the SMTP Envelope

I just use 

  *@haitech.martin.home    martin@internet-treff.uni-koeln.de F

as the rewrite rule at the buttom of exim.conf
