other users (not listed in trusted_users) can still set a sender with -f
on the command line, but exim will insert a "Sender: " header indicating
who sent the message.  So the envelope will still be as specified on the
command line, but the non-trusted_user can be more easily identified.
As dman says, check the spec for the full spiel.

good times,
