Hhm. I thought the problem was that you would like to change the From:
of those e-mails not the To: ?

Exactly... I receive the emails since I correctly configured my aliases to
redirect all mails externally...

The problem I have is with the from...

Someone told me to change the hostname in rc.conf, that won't work since I
have 4 machines:

	Machine1.mydomain.com
	Machine2.mydomain.com
	Machine3.mydomain.com
	Machine4.mydomain.com

I want the mail from to be 
root@mydomain.com not root@localhost.mydomain.com
...

Not too sure where to look into to fix this
