If you want outgoing mail to be rewritten as if from `afx.org.uk', you
will need to add:

MASQUERADE_AS(afx.org.uk)dnl

to your .mc file. The file `/usr/src/etc/sendmail/freebsd.mc' is a good
starting point. To compile it you need something like:

m4 -D_CF_DIR_=/usr/src/contrib/sendmail/cf/
/usr/src/contrib/sendmail/cf/m4/cf.m4 your.mc > sendmail.cf

The file `/usr/src/contrib/sendmail/cf/README' is a good reference.

Richard.
