What does your local mailer definition look like in your sendmail.cf
file? Here's an example:
Mlocal, P=/usr/bin/procmail, F=lsDFMAw5:/|@qSPfhn9, S=10/30, R=20/40,
A=procmail -Y -a $h -d $u
In this example, one of the mailer flags (after "F=") is 'n'. This
tells sendmail to NOT insert a unix style "From " line at the start
of the message, leaving it up to procmail to generate the "From "
line. Another flag is 'f', which tells sendmail to add
'-f <sendername>' to procmail's command line. This will tell
procmail to create a "From " line using <sendername>.
If the mailer flags had the 'n' but did not have 'f', then procmail
would assume that the "From " line should be set from the user ID that
is running the procmail process. If procmail is running as root, the
result would be "From root".
See if your local mailer definition does something different from
