Excerpt of message (sent 14 May 2002) by Stephen J. Turnbull:
I believe this difference has to do with the value of
mail-user-address. What are the values you see in Emacs vs XEmacs?
Does customizing that variable help in the current session?
I've always had user-mail-address in my .emacs, and this is what makes
it into "From:", and in Gnu (but not X) into the envelope sender
(Return-Path). Customizing it as in
'(user-mail-address "christian(a)xpogen.com" t)
'(mail-user-address "christian(a)xpogen.com" t) ; from stephen(a)xemacs.org
does not help.
It is probable that customization of that variable does _not_
from session to session in XEmacs 21.4 earlier than 21.4.6 (or maybe
maybe even 21.4.7) due a bug in the customization code corrected in
I edit my .emacs file, and thus set the variables persistently.

That's right. That's what the MTA is supposed to do AFAIK.
Gotta go out and find a newer mail-lib; I have 1.33, and Adrian
Aichner is at 1.45!
