  - "/usr/lib/sendmail -t"  means that the router needs to
    pick recipient addresses from  To:, Cc: and Bcc: headers.

  - Also the RFC 822/2822 does say that outgoing addresses
    in visible headers must have FQDN addresses

  - Sometimes it is desired to rewrite user addresses, e.g.:
       From: Matti Aarnio <mea@nic.funet.fi>
       From: Matti Aarnio <matti.aarnio@nic.funet.fi>

  That is indicative of broken code.  Nothing such should happen...
  Could you send me the original Bad Message ?
  (Its header block.)
