mailx with mailrc with from= setup does not work

Hi,

Currently all the mailx send out from the server from all user have the following format:
username@locahost.FQDN

We are trying to setup mailx to send out email to have the email all from no-reply-servername@domainA.com.

username@localhost.FQDN ==> no-reply-servername@domainA.com

We have edited the sendmail.cf to have localhost change to @domainA.com successfully.
However we are not manage to change username ==> no-reply-servername.

By the way, we don't one to use the mailx -r option as we have to change all script which are everywhere.

In our .mailrc file we have the following

set smtp=smtp://mail.gr.domainA.com
set from=no-reply-servername@domainA.com
set replyto=no-reply-servername@domainA.com

when we tried to send using following command

mailx -d -s "Testing" first.last@domainA.com

assign(MAILRC)=/root/.mailrc
assign(smtp)=smtp://mail.gr.domainA.com
value(autoprint)=
value(flipr)=
assign(from)=no-reply-servername@domainA.com
value(autoprint)=
value(flipr)=
assign(replyto)=no-reply-servername@domainA.com
value(autoprint)=
assign(smtp)=smtp://mail.gr.domainA.com
value(autoprint)=
value(flipr)=
assign(from)=no-reply-servername@domainA.com
value(autoprint)=
value(flipr)=
assign(replyto)=no-reply-servername@domainA.com
value(autoprint)=

It is able to read the mailrc file with the field from, however when the email is send out it have only
username@domainA.com.

Any idea how to make it work?

We tried the aliases setup, genericstable however it does not work.

COnfigure genericstable and it should work.

rebuild the genericstable in the sendmail.cf with the /usr/newconfig/etc/mail/cf/cf/gen_cf setup and theh copy sendmail.gen.cf file to /etc/mail/sendmail.cf and reconfigure sendmail again with DS and DM entry and then create a file called genericstabel and provide the appropraite entry and then rebuild the genericstable database as below 

 makemap dbm /etc/mail/genericstable < /etc/mail/genericstable

and then restart the senemail service and then recheck again

if still not working, kindly raise a consultancy ticket with HPE as it is a configuration and system admin task
