I believe this difference has to do with the value of
mail-user-address. What are the values you see in Emacs vs XEmacs?
Does customizing that variable help in the current session?
It is probable that customization of that variable does _not_ persist
from session to session in XEmacs 21.4 earlier than 21.4.6 (or maybe
maybe even 21.4.7) due a bug in the customization code corrected in

That's right. That's what the MTA is supposed to do AFAIK.
Return-Path is supposed to be the same as the envelope sender. (But
see the relevant RFC, 2822 I think, if you want to be sure.) So you
need to invoke with sendmail -f.
