Is this a feature, even? I should think all regular MUAs in Debian
happily allow the user to put anything he wants in the From line --
they had better, as a MUA running on a NATted box with no global FQDN
of its own has no way of knowing _any_ guaranteed-to-work sender

There does not appear to be anything one can do with this software
that is not straightforwardly possible with an off-the-shelf MUA
that can be configured to send to a smarthost rather than to a local
