True.  But no MTA I know of trusts MUAs enough to not quote the From line,
at least by default.

Since this is Debian, we could add policy that ALL Debian MUAs must honour
the Content-Length (maybe they all do anyway) and MTA's should be set up to
expect this.

I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not.

Have fun,
