Being an old Sendmail MTA geek, I use a different approach entirely.

I have a local MTA (now Postfix, as Sendmail is more or less abandonware
these days) on my machine, and use a "header_dependent_relay" database
to make Postfix select the right account based on the From: line. GNUS
just drops the mail on /usr/bin/sedmail (which is Postfix - aargh! ;-) )
and lets it deal with the problem. Postfix then acts as an SMTP client
vis-a-vis my various (three) different accounts.

"If all you have is a hammer ...", and my hammer is my MTA. :-)

Note: I'm not saying this is better in any way, I'm merely adding to the
list of available options, should anyone else be as crazy as I am. ;-)

Note2: None of the outgoing accounts is Gmail. I decided that that was
one dragon too many. ;-)
