That's a nicer way to fix it since it's not client dependent. Wonder when
postfix treats envelope sender as sender and when it treats "From:"
address as sender. It's not intuitive to me. In the option you suggest it
has to treat the latter as the sender.

On the contrary I see it as an issue that every user on the system has to
go to root to get the passwords entered. Probably that would be a
limitation since the server needs authentication details to, for example,
retry sending a message etc.

Client side sendmail invocation meets above need, but then of course lacks
spooling etc.

Is there any golden mean of these?
