Looks good to me (apart from missing quotes around J. Random User), I had
just checked the smail(5) manpage after your first message.
If you use the OneAndOnlyEditor(TM), this can be achieved by saying
(setq mail-default-headers "From: Joe User <firstname.lastname@example.org>\n")
in your ~/.emacs file. This is easier, doable from user space as opposed to
root and it also works on a per-user basis.
If you use pine, it can be done as outlined in the Linux Gazette article that
I mentioned earlier, albeit at the price of a recompilation.
