And here I was, thinking that email was one thing that I _had_ got
working reasonably cleanly in all the time I'd spent struggling
with debian. Ah well, back to the drawing board...
But isn't there something messy here? Couldn't both exim and
mutt insist on there being an EMAIL environment variable set,
thus making exim's rewriting rules and mutt's "from" variable
Anyway, thanks for all the help.
