'qmail-masq' works with qmail to masquerade the internal mail user's address as an external one when sending email from local users to the outside world. It's useful when you have an internal qmail mail server that is configured with a nonexistent internet domain or a domain that you don't own; if you send an email from the internal network the recipient cannot reply (or send new mail) because the address doesn't really exist. It's also useful if you own the external domain but you want your personal address to show. The program parses all mail if the "From" field is from an internal users and the "To:", "CC", or "BCC" fields are to an external one by modifying the From "field" so the sender's email is changed but the name is maintained. Users can also define "exceptions": mail users that will be masqueraded with a specified address instead of the default one.
