Only via From headers, which allows your email to appear as being 'from'
your aliases, but only appearing...
I whished you could set up a smpt server in order to make it possible to
send mails from the fedoraproject account.
At the moment i'm only able to receive mails, via another mail-box, but
am not able to sent mails which 'appear' to be from @fedoraproject.org
I'm against this because of the risk of some idiot deciding to use our
SMTP server to send bunches of SPAM e-mails. Add in issues with RBLs
and what not.
I should also add that this is nowhere near a fix as many ISPs have
started blocking SMTP access for their users to servers that they do not
control, for this very same reason. So no, I don't think configuring an
SMTP server with worth the time and effort for a few people that are
unable to 'fake' the From: field in their clients.
