My guess is that the envelope from or envelope recipient are wrong.
You could look in the sendmail queue to compare the values for a
message from pine and a message from RMAIL.

(For each message, sendmail has a df file and a qf file, I believe,
and one of them contains the message body and the other contains the
metadata, including sender and recipient info.  The latter is in the
R lines, but I forgot about the former.)
