Default email address in sendmail?

First of all, this is a horrendous idea, and I can't think for one 
minute of any justifiable reason that you'd want to do it.  That being 
said, you could do the following:

Add to LOCAL_CONFIG a regex to match against no user part:
Knouser regex -s -ayouraddress at ^[]

Then add to LOCAL_RULE_0:
R$*      $: $(nouser $1 $)

I'm not positive that this will work correctly, but it's going in the 
right direction.  YMMV.  Look up 'regex' in the Bat book: 23.7.20.  
Again, I wouldn't implement this by any means.
