Very likely, your SMTP server is configured to rewrite addresses on  
send (though it's possible you've done relevant setup in each of your  
"normal" imap clients also). If that's the case, you may have set up  
IMP to send email through local sendmail, instead of SMTP. Switching  
to have IMP contact your SMTP server would solve the problem.
