I should read in more detail... I replied as to how one sets an fqdn...
for email, you *might* want to investigate /etc/email-addresses if
you're using exim. It was added in the 3.12-1 package... if it is not on
stable (and you run stable) I can extract the necessary part of my
exim.conf file. It basically allows you to specify

username: email@address

for rewriting. So if user "username" sends an email his address will be
set to "email@address". This does require setting up on a per-user
basis, but it allows you to have compeletly different email addresses
for each user.
