Perhaps a better solution is this:

# Debian mail appears to come from me@debian.
send-hook (debian) "my_hdr From: Joey Hess <joeyh@debian.org>"
send-hook !(debian) "my_hdr From: Joey Hess <joey@kitenet.net>"

This makes mutt look at the headers of the message you are sending, and
changes your email address appropriatly. So I sent this to an address with
"debian" in it, and the first pattern matched.

The only annoying bit is you have to write a final line that negates all
the other patterns to catch the general case.
