I'm an Alioth administrator. If you expect help from us, you'd better not
say that our configuration is "braindead". This is the most basic thing
that we can do to avoid spam.

Other solution to fix your problem with postfix (instead of mutt) is to
configure address rewriting (/etc/postfix/main.cf):
# The ADDRESS_REWRITING_README document gives information about
# address masquerading or other forms of address rewriting including
# username->Firstname.Lastname mapping.

sender_canonical_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/canonical

And then put this in /etc/postfix/canonical:
<yourlogin> <your real email address>

And then generate the corresponding DB: sudo postmap /etc/postfix/canonical
