Indeed, --draft does not affect the directory where the message is
searched.  I'll check if it should and fix it if so.

That means that you have compiled MU without GNU SASL. If you don't need
ESMTP AUTH, leave it as is, but add ";noauth" to your SMTP url in
~/.mtstailor, e.g.:

url: smtp://mail.asahi-net.or.jp;noauth

Why should it? The default sender name (unless set explicitly elsewhere)
is composed by concatenating the login name of the user, a "@" sign
and the machine name, as returned by gethostname(2).

That's right. It should not have displayed anything.

It has nothing to do with inc. It is configured at the SMTP server (in
your case mail.asahi-net.or.jp). Normally the use of ESMTP AUTH is
optional. That's why I've asked whether you really need it. Since
you did not use it previously (it was not supported by MU 2.x anyway),
then perhaps you don't need it at all. In that case, just disable it as
I described above.

Let me know if it helps.
