Mail has a zillion options.
When I use: mail <inet.addrs> it sends mail to that address with the
options that I have set via dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config.
But it sends it from "root" (when I am logged on as root). "root" of
course does not exist at that inet.addrs.
How do I with an option not send from "root" as root but from "whomever"
I checked out the mailx ref manual but the answer is not obvious to the
casual oberver ;-)
Maybe /etc/email-addresses to rewrite the address? I've got the
rewriting working to add the correct internet email addresss, but exim4
still inserts the debian username. I'm still grappling with this
should-be-simple task myself.
Note the many bug reports on exim4-config about the confusing dialog in
dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config. Perhaps you can glean some useful hints
