I just found out that this a Mutt problem. When I send out mail using the
mail program, as I am right now, the address gets changed and sent out
correctly. Mutt's value for sendmail is the default, I havn't changed it;
set sendmail="/usr/sbin/sendmail -oem -oi"
Should I add something to mutt to make it work correctly and allow
sendmail to rewrite the From: fields or do I need to add something else to
