I guess but it apparently doesn't do it OOB.  I never liked how Exim 
leaked my AccountFullName+EtcEmailAddressesEmail identity in the Sender 
when I was using an alternate valid From email and nickname (like here).

So I like the idea of doing it in the MUA but I would still like some 
standarization or central management.  Probably can't have both.

I'm crawling forward.  At least I'm aware of the issues.

BTW, I realized if you purge Exim's configuration, /etc/email-addresses 
will disappears if you haven't modified it.
