Try this in your .emacs or .gnus:

  (setq user-full-name "Duane Winner")
  (setq user-mail-address "address@hidden)

Also, for authenticated SMTP, I use (obfuscated to protect the
innocent):

  (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods '(nnml ""))
  (eval-after-load "mail-source"
  '(add-to-list 'mail-sources '(pop :server "pop.myisp.com"
                                    :user "address@hidden"
                                    :password "mypassword")))
  (require 'smtpmail)
  (setq send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)
  (setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)
  (setq smtpmail-smtp-server "smtp.myserver.com")
  (setq smtpmail-local-domain "myisp.tld")
  (setq smtpmail-queue-mail nil)
  (setq smtpmail-debug-info nil)
  (setq smtpmail-auth-credentials
      '(("smtp.myserver.com" 25 "myusername" "mypassword")))

Which seems to work just dandy.
