What I did for my parents is to set up smail to pull out the 'From'
header and put in a correct one.  You could also stick in a reply-to the 
same way, although with a correct from field, an equivalent reply-to is extra.

If it's not clear how to do this from the documentation (it's mentioned 
in the transports part of man 5 smail), email me directly, and I'll try to
get you the relavent lines.
