I use smail, configured as the `satellite' option. I did the following
in the `transports' file to resolve the name problem:

smtp:	driver=tcpsmtp, max_addrs=100, -max_chars, inet,
	insert_header="From: lynbech@daimi.aau.dk ($sender_name on satellite)";
	use_bind, defer_no_connect, -local_mx_okay, defnames

which means that on outgoing posts (delievered via SMTP which is not
the default I believe), the from header is first removed and a new is
inserted. This gives me ordinary handling on local mail (internal on
the linux box) and my account name on everything that goes outside.
