Add an -r flag followed by the from address.

I wanna be able to change the default email anyway though, and adding that will only change the "root" on the adress

Locate and edit - should be in /etc/postfix
Add to the end of the file

smtp_generic_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/generic

...and save.


...and add on the end

Don't know why you would want to use the ancient sendmail especially as you are just setting up mail on the server.
Postfix (with Dovecot if needed) is the common MTA to use on Linux these days.

I will see if I can find anything on the setting, but their config files are near impossible to read.

I'll try with postfix instead
