If it is really an relaying server, it shouldn't rewrite the from address. If it does, you have to check with your provider why he does this and if he is willing to turn it off. If, on the other hand, you try to use an SMTP server that is meant for another domain (like you try to send mail via the GMail SMTP server), the server operator does this on purpose to prevent this and you can't stop it and shouldn't try.

Sorry, I don't really understand this comment. If you are trying to use your GMail account for relaying, it's not going to work. – Sven Dec 14 '10 at 11:18
ok, i understand, is there any server which doesn't change from field? – Azfar Niaz Dec 14 '10 at 11:20
Sorry, it don't know about any "relaying-only" service providers. I usually send mail via the provider who registered the domain for me or run my own mail server in a datacenter. – Sven Dec 14 '10 at 11:24
