Intriguing thought!

When I first started using MH (in grad school), the default for
Local-Mailbox (<user>@<host>) was my actual mailbox address.  It
wasn't until much later, when I started using a laptop and
connecting via commercial ISPs, that my current situation arose,
where <user>@<host> has no use for email purposes.  (In fact, I
set up my repl*comps at that time to explicitly specify what my
addresses, for From:, Reply-To:, etc., are.  They do that to
this day.)

This works for me, but I would prefer to do things the "proper"
way.  Thanks for the suggestion!
