It's not very useful, but it's supposed to be a value that the user
"can't" change, so that when posting on Usenet News, we can generate a
"more secure" Sender header to complement the user-driven From header.
For instance when doing Cancel-Lock stuff.

But I assume that your (system-name) evaluates to
"address@hidden", which doesn't look very pretty, so you have
a misconfigured OS.
