Please consider adding a command line option to
assert an overriding hostname for inserted headers.
This is useful for secondary MX servers that might
have internal hostnames that shouldn't be exposed (or
otherwise differ from what might be configured in
sendmail itself). I've patched 0.2.10 supporting a -
H option for this purpose.

    Can you attach your patch?

    The hostname used in that header is the value of the "$j"
    macro from the MTA, which I believe is also used in
    Received: headers. Isn't changing the name from sid-filter
    insufficient?

    If so, maybe you should be changing the value of "$j" instead?

    I have my own patch for this now. Let me know if you'd like
    to try it before the next release and I can make it available.

    I'm happy to test it. What's the next step?

    Done for v0.2.11, now released.

    Sorry, I missed your offer to test it in the volume of mail
    I've been getting lately. Let me know if the new release
    does what you want.
