"resend" doesn't rewrite the "From:" line. You really don't want it
to; you want "From:" to reflect the email address of the person who
originally submitted the message. If I hacked on "From:" for the
Majordomo-Users mailing list, for instance, your messages to
Majordomo-Users might end up looking like they were from
"ec@GreatCircle.COM", and that wouldn't be right.
The "-h" argument is used to construct the "Sender:" and "Reply-To:"
"resend" is perl. You could make it do almost anything with just a
change or two... :-)
