I know what you mean.  I think in terms of external dependencies we
aren't so bad (although if you want to submit email to gmail, you'll need
cyrus-sasl and openssl, but those are becoming more and more standard

Just curious ... where did you read that?  AFAIK sendmail won't add a
Sender header, but I could be wrong ... definitely in your case nmh
was doing it, as you've discovered.

Well, if you don't have a postproc in your .mh_profile, then I guess
you're using the sendmail MTS.  You can look in mts.conf for that.
We've cleaned that up, but that's probably post-1.5 (but it shouldn't
be needed for this problem).

You could probably do that with "inc", the nmh tool designed for that :-).
Might need some finessing with the current limitations on inc, though.
But it should be doable.
