How do I get the backspace key to send ^H in tmux?

New user to tmux.

Unfortunately, one of the first things I discovered is that (in tmux), pressing the backspace key throws out ^? instead of ^H (xterm), which is causing me all sorts of problems.

I assume this is relatively easy to reconfigure, but I spent some time searching and reading for how to do it, but couldn't find it.

Can you please tell me what to place in the configuration file to get the backspace key to send ^H in tmux?

If that is not possible, can you direct me to the correct source file that controls this behavior, and I will patch my own copy and recompile?
