I suspect two things happening here:

1) the mail you are getting back is not from your netwinder... the name 
"System Administrator" is characteristic of MS-Exchange servers, not the 
sendmail program used on the netwinder.

2) You need to tell the netwinder which domains (laurasfunds.com) it is 
"serving".  This means either setting the netwinder's domain to match, 
or else adding to the sendmail configuration files, the extra domain 

Depending on your ISP, it may not be possible for you to send mail 
directly from your netwinder - as ISP's become more accountable for the 
mail their users send out, many of them are forcing you to go via their 
servers so that they have an accurate record of who is sending what.
