	Yes,  it is in your  /etc/mail.conf  (Don't you have it ?)
#  Zmailer host dependent information
# Where am I?
orgdomain=utu.fi		<--- apply your own
# Who am I?
# What do I tell people?
# World hack!
# rrouter.cf uses these..
: ${BITNETACTION:="smtp figbox.funet.fi"}	<-- choose your nearest
: ${UUCPACTION:="smtp mail.eunet.fi"}		<-- choose your nearest

You get that source-routing into the TRANSPORT ENVELOPE when
`hostname' != `mydomain'.  (Transport-envelope gets written on
"From_", but not on "From:")

PS: Things look promising on "mea" release RSN, maybe tonight..
    (Solaris shell-io dumps core, but SunOS 4.1.3 compiled binary
     router runs just fine on Solaris 2.3 machine :-/ )
