I knew about this problem when I sent this mail. I thought about a solution
for, but the only things I can come up with are the following two:

a) Allow the user to register email addresses he want's to send mail from
b) To ease the task of a) in case someone has got lot's of addresses
   I propose the use of wildcards like Chris_G_Demetriou@* :-)

But, to be honest, I'm not sure if this would be really feaseable, as the
load on our mailserver seems to be high already. (Which brings us to the
question which Matthias Scheler raised a couple of days(/weeks?) ago, is
there anything we can do to distribute the workload to other servers, but this
is just another story...)
