Hello Developers,

This is my first post to the List, so let me say hello and say "thank you" 
for the great
piece of software you are developing.

I run my installation of bugzilla for quiet some time now, doing some 
testing and
finnishing the localisation to german.

These days, i ran into a problem with some freemail-services like GMX.
A GMX-user didn't get emails from my bugzilla.
After a longer research i found out, that GMX (and many others) aren't 
accepting emails
with a wrong "Return-To" Path.

Return-Path: <apache at localhost> 
Received: from ([xx.xx.xx.xx]) 
     by (8.11.6/8.11.6) with ESMTP id i1P7t4U07920 
     for <xy at>; Wed, 25 Feb 2004 08:55:04 +0100 
To: xy at 
MIME-Version: 1.0 

So... what is the right way to set this sender to the bugzilla-admin?
I found out that 
  sendmail -fx at
does the trick.

Am i the only one with this problem?

Sorry that I can't make a diff- file, i don't know how to use diff.
