email shows "on behalf of" need to alter php ini file


i have used universal email to send a "signup" email confirmation. when its sent the email arrives with the HOSTS email address on bealf of mine.. IE on behalf of

i also went through the checkout wizard of ecart, and that setup an email confirmation, and that email arrives showing the same issue, with the on behalf of

i contacted my host about this. (i have never experienced this at any other hosting company). the response i got back was this:
the fastest method is going to be a custom php.ini for this user with sendmail_from = defined with a suitable address

so my question is this, should i be alarmed by this? it seems odd to me because i have used your scripts on at least 6 different hosting platforms and never run into this.

and 2nd, anyone have any idea what line i need to add to the php ini file? or anyone know of another solution to fix this?
