According to the documentation I have available (in the cf/trusted.cf
file), ZMailer by default only trusts "root", "daemon" and "uucp" to
change the apparently originating user.  If you want to change the
default, create a "zmailer" group with the above "trusted" users plus
the "nobody" user and re-start ZMailer.
