Which MTA do you use on your system and how is it configured?

Not reportbug, no.  You might have to configure Emacs, though.

Note that Gnus uses message-mode to compose and send mail, while stock
Emacs uses a different method by default.  You can adjust this by
putting the following in your .emacs:

(setq mail-user-agent 'gnus-user-agent)

See the description of mail-user-agent for details.  BTW, how does Gnus
send your mail?
