"RFC"? I know FAQs, manpages, HOWTOs and /usr/doc/*, but that's a new one
to me.:) Where do I find it?

Yeah, I have this in ip-up.

Okay, tin works, sort of. It seems it still can't find my hostname since
my From: lines show up as "email@example.com", but I can manually edit that.
It's a pain though.
(The file /usr/doc/tin/INSTALL.gz cryptically recommends that I "check
that DOMAIN_NAME & INEWS_MAIL_DOMAIN are correctly set to produce a
correct From: headers for your site." Set how? Setting these as
environment variables has no effect... surely these don't need to be fixed
