I have 3 email accounts, one at my university, one for private mail and
one used for public communication (basically an anti spam provision).
My university account uses my real name, my privat address my nick.
All of them are used regularly, so I really have use for gnus-pers or
postingstyles. And I really want to trust my setup: It would be very
embarassing sending a mail to my Prof. using my nick ;).
If postingstyles are considered usefull, why is using the corresponding
smtp-servers considered unusual?

Still some minor problems, I try to figure out whats going wrong.
The new approach feels less clean, because it does not use a hook anymore:
"To tackle this problem, instead of hooking CHANGE-SMTP into
MESSAGE-SEND-HOOK, wrap SMTPMAIL-VIA-SMTP totally"
I am no programmer (thank god elisp is fairly easy to read compared
to, say, perl), but so far, patching my own smtpmail.el seems easier
and more reliable than adding things to my .gnus.
Alternatively using msmtp could be another easy viable way.
