[Pkg-exim4-users] address rewriting

I'm configuring my newly installed sarge and I'm having trouble
getting exim4 to rewrite the "from" and "return path" and "sender"
fields on outgoing mail.  I've read the README.Debian and the man page
for update-exim4-config.  I've been using "dpkg-reconfigure
exim4-config" and it's restarting the exim daemon when complete.  My
/etc/email addresses contains the one line: "loginname at myisp.net", my
real email address.  I'm a simple dialup user and my box has no FQDN. 
It does have a hostname "myhostname" and exim is using that for my
system mailname in /etc/mailname.  I think that's how it should be
because I have indicated my wish to rewrite later in this
"dpkg-reconfigure exim4.config" script.  /etc/email-addresses has my
real email address on its only line.  I am not preceding my
"loginname at myisp.net with the word user:, should I?

I would aprecate any comments or suggestions.
