I believe you are wrong here. This would be damn stupid (BTW, the
mailinglist might reject the message based on this, the receiving MTA
however must not do this).
I have no problems with something like that. Did you choose to send
_all_ outgoing mail via your isp's smtp server (smarthost)?
For me, I just set the visible_name and use the method described in
http://www.debian.org/fom/137.html to change the From: and Sender:
header (so I don't have to do it im every programm sending mails).
