INN itself doesn't provide the From header; this is something that's done
by the client.  If the client uses INN's inews and relies on it to
generate the From header, it may be out of luck, but there are other inews
programs out there that have support for various ways of configuring the
domain name.  And most news clients that I know of these days have ways of
configuring this in the client.
