Careful reading of the RFCs indicates to me that Sender is *not* intended for
use by automated programs, they do not have to be legitimate email addresses,
and in fact would be perfectly RFC compliant if they were of the form:
Sender: Joes_Secretary at joes_office
Thus no program should be using them for anything.
