Receiving e-mail with PAB e-mail address

I am facing a problem. I made an agent in Lotus 5.0.8 and it's working.

Name: Send Mail to External Account
Shared: Yes
Agent: Before New Mail Arrives
Simple Action-> Send Mail Message
(Filled with Required information)
I am receiving mail with a recipient of Lotus_xxx (i.e., my Lotus server name). I want to receive mail with my e-mail address, which is in PAB. Can you help me to solve this problem or provide me an alternate solution?
If the agent is signed with your own ID, any e-mail it sends will normally look like it came from you. "Before new mail arrives" agent is an exception because it has to be run by the mail delivery system before the e-mail is put into your mail file. Try running your agent "After new mail has arrived" instead. The e-mail will not go out as quickly (depending on your server settings there may be a few minutes delay), but it should go out in your own name.

See also Troubleshooting agents in Notes/Domino 5 and 6, especially the section entitled "How can I change the apparent sender of agent generated mail?"
