Are you sure of this ?

I wanted to subscribe to a mailing list and saw that gnus did add
something to the header that made the mailing list reply to my main
That's why I checked the mail-header by sending mail to myself and saw
the X-From-Line added . Now that I added 2 config vars (see other post)
, the X-From-Line is still added , but the content is taken from the
From-field which is now a correct behaviour.
I modified nothing else than these 2 vars , and now things work nice ...
