First it depends on the mail software you want to use. I on my own prefer postfix. And then the appropriate documentation / mailing list should be sufficient to set it up. Main idea is, that all nodes are send-only machine and use the headnode of the cluster (sometimes this is called a null-client) to relay the email to the final destination. 

- So the first setup should get it working, that the emails are received on the headndoe of the cluster (there any sender address will work).

- Implement on the nodes to change the sender (this can either be done in a mail wrapper by using -f) or in the mail software (which I prefer) using a sender_canonical entry of type regexp:

/^(.*@).*$/     ${1}my.fqdn.test

- Then users should be able to use either -M with the final address, or create a ~/.forward with the final address. This way they don't have to specify it all the times.
