ps BTW, the senders IP address is usually inserted by the MTA, not
MUA in the headers. Good luck with getting that changed.


You probably haven't read anything I've said before.
IP address is inserted by thunderbird MUA by HELO=my_IP_address
Hostname is inserted by evolution MUA by HELO=my_hostname
It is *provided* by the MUA to the MTA.  It is *inserted* in the
Received header by the MTA.  Nothing blocks the MTA from adding the MUA
IP address *despite* the information provided in the HELO message.

Fine, I agree. Let HELO be *provided* by MUA and *inserted* as is by MTA as said
in RFC, I suppose. At least it is an observed behavior among all public mail
servers I have access to.
PS. It sounds like you want to return.
Absolutely not. Another example of catching only a tail of conversation and
making wrong conclusion.

I said at the very beginning that I want evolution behave *exactly* as
thunderbird and offered a patch. That is all. I am not going to continue this discussion.
