[clug-talk] Sendmail Question

Does anyone know how to change the envelope sender address in sendmail?
i.e, when the system sends an email to root, or whoever is setup to receive the system messages, the sender address is as such:
root at host.domain.com
This causes a problem, as most of the time, 'host.domain.com' might not be a valid dns host, so basic sendmail checking would bounce the
message back stating:
Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 553 5.1.8 <root at host.domain.com>... Domain of sender address root at host.domain.com does not exist
Last-Attempt-Date: Fri, 19 Nov 2004 18:15:12 -0700
I'd need the email to come from root at domain.com, or just take the easy way out and add a dns record for 'host.domain.com'. I'd prefer
the former, as I don't have easy access to the dns configuration.
