As Fred said, there are some dialplan functions for asterisk that should 
help setting caller id. IIRC, there are also some specific fields in 
database (e.g., domain part of the user).

Anyhow, what I really wanted to point here is, if you don't get it fixed 
in asterisk (where is better), look at uac_replace_from() from uac 
module of kamailio.
