Can the "From:" field on an incoming message be re-written from:
1) >From: Joe User <hosta.com!juser@uunet.UUCP>
2) >From: hosta.com!juser@uunet.UUCP (Joe User)
I received a few replies falling in one of three categories:
1) Check the definition of "Dq". It was already set to "Dq$g$?x ($x)$.",
which seems to be fine. This appears to be used when sending messages,
and our situation is with receiving messages.

2) "This cannot be done with rewrite rules. The preservation of
format is hardwired in code inside 'sendmail'. Rewrite rules can
change what goes inside the <>, but they cannot remove the <>, nor
change what goes outside." I tend to believe this is the case, so
we'll just live with it for now.

3) Use a better e-mail tool, such as PC-NFS SelectMail, or fix the one
being used now. I would like to move to a real LAN-based e-mail package,
but it would take funds not yet currently available. Trying to fix the one
used now might be a possibility, but I would prefer to put the time and
money into something better for the long term.
