setting the From address to whatever you want it to be _before_ sending
the email to sendmail (deliberately ignoring relay issues here, since I
presume you'll be sending the mail from localhost, or at the most a
local network). Most MUA's can set up profiles (or whatever they call
them) to send from different from addresses. Eg., when I email ILUG, my
from address is set to john+ilug at jmadden.eu.

>Personally, I've found postfix easy to configure and run, but go with
sendmail if you prefer. Set it up first and check local mail delivery -
send yourself an email on the system running sendmail, and check that it
Next, configure fetchmail (I use /etc/fetchmailrc and run the daemon at
boot - other option is to use a .fetchmailrc in your home directory, and
manually run fetchmail, or run fetchmail -d as the user you want the
mail delivered to). Try it with one account first, and use the -k (I
think) option to keep a copy of the mail on the server, in case things
go wrong. Check if this mail has gotten delivered.
Lastly, add on spamassassin and clamav - call them from procmail.
