First of all, that "from-clause" is all inside comment.
The begin part of it:
from localhost user: 'XXXXXX' uid#YYYYY fake:
is produced by the router, while the rest:
is by a code at libc/mail.c (see for "STDIN").
This combination is due to libc/mail.c generating that
"rcvdfrom" header, but the sender is not among TRUSTED
users, thus router/rfc822.c puts in that "this is what
I see, here is the fake there was in the input".
None of the domains/addresses in these are run thru router
to e.g. generate a view of what the user should be.
The end-result does not look too nice. If you have some
idea what to make to improve it, I will consider ways to
Oh yes, I also am considering of creating a mechanism for
parametrizing the "Received:" header generation. Including
things like the "for-clause" (which is receivers business,
only, but sometimes the transmit side could rewrite it;
e.g. list-expansion would produce things which some list-
managers would like to see..)
