Custom headers -- outgoing email
I need to set some custom headers in my outgoing mail; however, it
appears the MUA doesn't have final say in this matter; the MTA does some
tinkering of its own in this field.
I'm running mutt, and am using the exim MTA. Here are the relevant
headers from most of my mails:
From: Aaron Van Couwenberghe <email@example.com>
I have mutt set up to include ~/.muttrc-local for each user. My
.muttrc-local has (among other things) the following commands:
my_hdr From: "Aaron Van Couwenberghe" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
my_hdr Sender: <email@example.com>
Now, where is the Sender: header being replaced? Does the MTA override this
setting? If so, how can one get a mail system useful for a single,
periodically connected account?
I ask this because some MDA's reject mails with inappropriate Sender
envelopes. IE my mails to certain private individuals bounce predictably.
