You can ask your MTA (sendmail, qmail whatever) to rewrite the headers, so
that any instance of brad myhouse net, is replaced with
muglesto megsinet net 

Is that solution acceptable to you?

The header rewriting is a simple thing to implement, the MTA's
documentation should provide this info, but if you are running sendmail
its best to ask someone on this list howto do it, as configuring sendmail
is a PITA, without help from someone.

I have forgotten much of the sendmail that I learnt looong ago ;) (I am a
qmail man now)  So I am afraid that I cant help you on how to make this
simple change if your MTA is sendmail.

Best Wishes,
