You can't really. The address that is stamped there is the address of the SMTP server, not the machine the person is sending it from. As you are probably well aware, SMTP is the outgoing mailman. It is the same thing as the post office in real life. You may send a letter from the town of PULLMAN, in the state of WASHINGTON, however the postmark is gonna say that the letter was sent from the city of SPOKANE in the state of WASHINGTON. This is because all of the mail is routed to a central location where it is marked and delivered. Outlying towns, or in your case computers, don't have the resources to run their own SMTP, nor is it necessary. It is easier for all the mail to be processed in one spot per network.

If you have a need, and the person is somewhere on the network you are the admin for, you can probably tag all of his e-mail so that the machine name shows up. I have never had a need to do this, however I am sure it is possible...

Hope this helps... Cheers!
