I suspect that this .muttrc fragment violates the letter of the DMUP:
send-hook (debian) "my_hdr From: Joey Hess <email@example.com>"
send-hook !(debian) "my_hdr From: Joey Hess <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
I have this .muttrc propigated to all debian machines. This means that if I
send mail from one of those machines that does not contain "debian" in the
header, the mail will be "forged" to appear to be from a different machine.
This will also arrange for replies to it to go to another machine.
I think you need to loosen up your language about this.
