I've just fought with the same problem yesterday. If anybody is  
interested, the provider in question is T-Online; you *can* do CSLIP with  
Linux (you'll probably have to recompile the kernel, the 1.2.x modules  
don't work for CSLIP as provided by Debian). Their MTA (a modified Smail,  
I believe, announces nearly the same version number as ours) does  
automatically rewrite From: and Sender: in that mail - but it doesn't  
rewrite the Envelope. Bounces go nowhere useful.

I'll probably report this as a T-Online bug and work on a hack to rewrite  
the Envelope myself.

I hate online services. My home box uses a sane provider where I get my  
own domain. But that one can't serve businesses ... I'll probably try to  
talk my boss into looking for another provider in the area.
