UUCP and MAIL FROM:
It's better late than never. I have understood: all dial-up users
invoking uucico must be in Zmailer 'trusted' group. And now it works.
NB: open-source software is 200% documented in reality. And that's
great! :-). "man router" says only that 'uucp' user must be trusted.

Subject: UUCP and MAIL FROM:
I use Zmailer as MTA at a Linux host with some UUCP "downlinks".
The minor problem is that any mail being sent from UUCP is owned by
respective "UUCP login" pseudo-user. I.e., if
email@example.com sends UUCP message to world, and his
UUCP logs in as uusubdomainfakeuser, Zmailer says
Respectively, any errors are returned to this MAIL FROM. Of course,
it is aliased to <firstname.lastname@example.org> now.
The nature of problem is clear: rmail looks on his UID when giving
message to Zmailer. But what is the solution? UUCP is Taylor's.
