At 10:36a -0500 02/16/2002, Al Gilman didst inscribe upon an electronic papyrus:

The personal mail address is needed for copy-self when sending mail, even when
you do not wish to disclose it in anonymous FTP.

There should be separate controls for more different cases where your email
address is used.

Having to flip into O)ptions to change your email of record (across all
potential uses by the program) whenever you happen to want to do an anonymous
FTP is not usable.  Real users will never do it.

I, too, think this is the best solution. Example:

  General Preferences
  Personal mail address            : address@hidden

  Headers Transferred to Remote Servers
  FTP mail address                 : address@hidden

 who uses multiple email addresses (doesn't almost everyone now?)

; To UNSUBSCRIBE: Send "unsubscribe lynx-dev" to address@hidden
