[hosers-talk] MAILHOST and MAILUSER

Something neat I just discovered:

You may have noticed that when you send mail or subscribe to mailing lists,
often your address will show up as username@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx instead
of username@xxxxxxxxxxxx If you'd like to change that, you can do the

1. Add these two variables to ~/.bash_profile:

replacing 'username' with your username.

2. Append MAILHOST and MAILUSER to the export line in ~/.bash_profile.

3. Add the appropriate From line to your ~/Mail/components,
~/Mail/replcomps, and ~/Mail/forwcomps:

From: User Name <username@xxxxxxxxxxx>

4. ???

5. Profit!!!
