Not possible, I think, as I recall masquerading only works on
users not in the T macro. (ie: Trusted Users) root is
most definitely in this macro.
Masquerading is a bullshit way of doing this kind of
thing anyhow. Use the -f switch if your calling the sendmail
binary directly from programs. If your using /bin/mail
as a MUA, then get a better one like Elm or Pine that
lets you do this.
