Thanks for the response, Ken!

My apologies!  It's version 1.3-1 (pretty ancient, I guess, but
that's what's tied to my version of Ubuntu -- something else I
need to update).

I very much look forward to using 1.5, then!

Yes, the version I'm using doesn't allow me to configure the
"Sender:" field, which was the first thing I try.  NMH gives me
the following error message:

     whom: illegal header line -- Sender:

I wasn't aware that it was NMH that adds in the Sender: field.
I thought it was sendmail.  In fact, my "fix" (as I mentioned in
the other followup on this thread, and after a lot of googling)
was to reconfigure sendmail to remap my local (illegal) address
to "address@hidden" instead.

Happily, I was able to do this without needing to reconfigure
NMH (although I recognize that the sendmail "solution" is really
a hack, and that the configurability you describe with the 1.5
version of NMH would by far be preferred).
