These headers are shown in the headers dropdownbox when composing new
messages; customizations are stored in the user_pref

Kind of indicates that you can set headers based on a per email
setting in mnehy, wouldn't you say?

Rather indicates that you can add headers to the list of *available*
headers using that hack, and then change the settings / mail.

But just to be sure I installed mozilla-thunderbird on my machine.
And indeed, this adds another header to the list of headers available
when composing the e-mail.

Do you have any particular need to use the same MUA for all platforms?

I still haven't seen any quoted/referenced reason that makes sense.
Then again, it might not ever become a standard, but it's the best
solution for the problem existing.  Until someone comes up with
something better, I'll go with M-F-T (not that I use it myself, since
I'm subscribed to the lists already, and I get too much email anyway
to want any copies - the all too common crossposting is bad enough
as it is...)
