Email configuration for netbackup

I am facing issues in configuring the email notifications from the Netbackup master server for  Catalog, Vault Reports and all other crucial reports. The emails are sent via the "root" id of the master server which is an invalid one.

A glimpse of maillog when sending the mail:

Jun 14 11:21:11 nsnbkct11 sendmail[10062]: q5EFLBsp010062: from=<>, size=716, class=0, nrcpts=1, msgid=<>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost.localdomain []
Jun 14 11:21:11 nsnbkct11 sendmail[9892]: q5EFHk9v009892: to=root, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:03:25, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30401, relay=[] [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (q5EFLBsp010062 Message accepted for delivery)
Jun 14 11:21:11 nsnbkct11 sendmail[10063]: q5EFLBsp010062: to=<>, ctladdr=<> (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=30973, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

"" is not a valid email address and netbackup uses this address to send mails. I would need help in configuring the sender's email address to use as a registered / valid one and override the default settings.

Please guide as to where and what configuration file needs to modified.

Master : Netbackup 6.5.6

OS: RHEL 6 x86
