From /usr/share/doc/slrn/FAQ.gz:

Subject: 12. How can I set my rom' line for my posts?

     Use the .slrnrc settings:

         set hostname "YOUR.HOST.NAME"
         set username "USERNAME"
         set realname "YOUR REAL NAME"

    This will cause slrn to use a From line of the form:


    Finally, if a slang function called 
    exists, then it will be used to generate the rom' header, e.g.,

        define make_from_string_hook ()
           return "W. J. Clinton <president@whitehouse.gov>";
