smtpmail.el, user-mail-address and posting styles

It seems smtpmail.el ignores the posting styles when issuing the "MAIL FROM:"
and uses the global value of user-mail-address instead of the address set via
posting styles.

This is a problem because AFAICS the Return-Path is set to the
address from the "MAIL FROM:".

I use something like this:

(setq gnus-posting-styles
; Default style for mail
         (address "address@hidden")
         (signature-file "~/Mail/signature.default"))))

When I try to send mail, smtpmail generates the address of MAIL FROM
from my login name and local host name. When I

(setq user-mail-address "address@hidden")

smtpmail.el always uses "address@hidden" and never "address@hidden".

Something wrong with my posting styles or is it a bug in smtpmail.el?

TIA, Matthias
