You can put:
set from=gwschenk at socal.rr.com
into your ~/.muttrc which should help, but yes, the general solution
is to use sendmail's Masquerade feature.

Hmmm.. Try this in your `hostname`.mc. Don't leave a space before the
'dnl' after those entries, and make sure you get the quoting right.
With m4(1) you need to use quotes like `this', not like 'this':
In case your screen font doesn't make the distinction clear, the first
quote mark ` is character 96, and the second quote mark ' is character
39 -- see ascii(7) for the whole table.
