It does not reject address@hidden, presumably.  I recommend
that you learn the difference between the "From: " header in a mail
and the "From " line in an mbox file usually (but not necessarily)
derived from the SMTP greeting.

I would not go as far as to claim that your setup is broken (putting a
default mail domain into some headers is not uncommon in order to make
them replyable), but it would seem that you don't understand what your
system is doing here.
