Let me try this again...

Also not needed.

Not nice, as long as you can do it on one machine.  Using several ports
would not help.  Nobody will connect to smtp on other port than 25...

Yes.  Doesn't that work for you?

OK, let's see.  You seem to be using Netscape as a MUA.  How do you send the
messages?  I suppose you connect to the smtp port on a Debian machine.  (Did
I guess it?)  Now, if you just set your email to the desired value
(dgay@progworks.com) in  Netscape/Preferences/Mail&Newsgroups/Identity, you
should be get the desired effect.

Of course, sendmail would have to allow relaying for your IP address or for
domain progworks.com.

Hope this was clearer...
