There seems to be a lot of that among MH/nmh users :-)

Back in "the day" that was normally rewritten for you by your local
MTA (assuming the administrator of your site was reasonably competent).
But to borrow a phrase, the world has moved on since then for good
or for bad.  These changes we're discussing here in 1.5 have all
been about bringing nmh into the modern world.

FWIW, in 1.5 masquerade is now always on and you can set your local
mailbox name directly in the .mh_profile; also with the new changes you
have a chance to see what nmh thinks your "From:" line should be, which
strangely enough was always a mystery before.
