You're right that SMART_ADDRESS_MATCH has been removed for MM2.1.  I
made this decision because it really was trying to work around, IMO,
misconfigured (remote) mail servers, and it was difficult to get right
in the face of ccTLDs.  If you have members who cannot fix their mail
servers to include canonical From: addresses, then the workaround is
the same as if that member wants to post from multiple addresses.
They must subscribe each address and disable all but the one they want
mail delivered to.
