Yes, this is exactly what SMail does. I used the ambiguous phrase
"sometimes" because several people have attempted to "educate" me that
SMail 3 does something else, and I wanted to avoid hashing out the whole
thing again.... :-) And while it is a deliberate design choice, I
simply find it annoying that (considering all the other features in
Smail that do mimic sendmail) they didn't make this feature operate
just like sendmail.
