> DNS MX (Mail Exchange) records are what I was talking about.

They're used to figure out where to deliver mail to (e.g. for
mail sent to david at codepoets.co.uk, your local SMTP server will do a NS
lookup on the MX records for codepoets.co.uk; it will find that there
are 3, and will start off trying to talk to the server with the lowest
priority. If that fails, it will try with the next highest and so on).

This isn't relevant for Adam's problem, as he's trying to disguise who
he appears to be sending mail as ( i think ) (hence sendmail -f)

(Using sendmail -f is a bit ugly as you see a message in the email
headers about it)
