I've found that it is sufficient to set visible_name to the host part of my
popmail address. That is, my email address at BrightNet is
firstname.lastname@example.org so I put visible_name=win.bright.net in
smail/config. This gets my mail out past their anti-spam-relay rules, but
with an invalid envelope address such as email@example.com. If I could
just find a way to put jghasler on there instead of the "correct" username,
I be home free.
