In sendmail, class 't' lists the users trusted to reset the envelope
address. Configure this by adding the usernames one per line to
/etc/mail/trusted-users and adding:


into your (then 'make' and 'make install' and 'make restart'
as usual).  It's the sendmail sm_msp process that needs this
modification, rather than the sm_mta process.  See the section
"MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in /usr/share/sendmail/cf/README.
