Is recompiling the only way specify that? I would that something like
that should be able to be configured in a config file somewhere. Maybe
in a future version?

It's a build-time option:

$ ./configure --help | tail

  --maildomain=MAILDOMAIN override the default domain for outgoing mail
                          i.e. "user at maildomain".  the default
maildomain is the
                          hostname where the job was submitted from
