Hi there,

You didn't mention what you've tried. I use mutt in conjunction with
exim to handle my mail needs. I think that I've had success with the
from command in a .muttrc file. From the mutt manual:


  Type: e-mail address
  Default: "" 

  When set, this variable contains a default from address. It can be
  overridden using my_hdr (including from send-hooks) and

Since I use exim though, I have exim rewrite my headers:

  mwagnon@smaug.com mwagnon1@home.com bcfrF

This rewrites my local address to my isp email address for the bc, cc,
from, from:, and reply-to headers.

I don't know how much help I was, but good luck anyway...
