You need the *recipient* addresses replaced? That would be complicated in
sendmail and probably easier to do with the MUA. (send to and bcc everyone else).

If you want all mail *from* to appear to come from, that's more common and can be accomplished with
sendmail generics rewriting (ie bob works for HR). Not sure off the top

/etc/mail/genericstable would look like:

You may also have to put in the GENERICS_DOMAIN macro.
