Well, this isn't _exactly_ what you asked for, but I'm certain it'll do.
On my box, I have smail rewrite headers on outgoing mail to get the From:
address correct.  I wrote up how I do this (and more) on a web page,
located at http://www.math.jhu.edu/~martind/mybox.html

But I'm a bit curious why you're getting this error - my smail _will_ send
out mail with From: headers pointing to invalid mailhosts (I have things
set up so that users in a certain database have their From: lines
rewritten, but those that aren't in the file don't get headers rewritten).
Are you certain that it's your smail that's producing this complaint, and
not the smtp server on your smarthost?
