Sendmail overriding Eudora return address

I'm using Solaris 2.5.1 and running sendmail 8.8.4.
 When I send an email using Eudora, sendmail replaces what I have in my
return address configuration with whatever is in the hosts file that
sendmail is running on.  For instance, if I put ccsi.com first in the hosts
file, and if I have infinity.ccsi.com in my Eudora (or MS internet mail),
after I send an email the return address is replaced with teklord@ccsi.com.
 If I change the hosts file to have infinity.ccsi.com first, then it is
changed to teklord@infinity.ccsi.com, even if I have teklord@ccsi.com in
the Eudora return address.  I really need help so that it ignores the hosts
file and just uses what ever is in the return address field of the
respective programs.   Thanks in advance.:

sounds like you have masquerading set in your solaris sendmail.cf file.  look for a line that starts with:

  CM...

if there's anything after the "CM", erase it (but leave the CM).

restart sendmail.

i THINK that's the only place it's set

let me know if it works.

I don't have masquerading on.  This is the line for my sendmail.cf:

# class L: names that should be delivered locally, even if we have a relay
# class E: names that should be exposed as from this host, even if we
masquerade # class M: domains that should be converted to $M
#CL root
CE root

# dequoting map
Kdequote dequote

# who I masquerade as (null for no masquerading) (see also $=M)
#DM
                 
I tried replacing the CE root with just CM, to no avail.  Thanks.

Any other ideas?

i'm pretty sure to turn off masquerading, you need to have DM (sorry - i had CM in my first answer) defined to null:


# class L: names that should be delivered locally, even if we have a relay
# class E: names that should be exposed as from this host, even if we masquerade
# class M: domains that should be converted to $M
#CL root
CE root

# dequoting map
Kdequote dequote

# who I masquerade as (null for no masquerading) (see also $=M)
DM

this is an excerpt from my sendmail.cf file.  eudora is our user mail agent (both mac and pc, lite and pro) and it keeps the eudora set return address.

to be paranoid, i just monkeyed with my eudora settings and verified that it kept the eudora return address.
