SENDING BUGS:

     * is configured to handle it well.

     * We weren't converting the Lcc header to a Bcc header.
  Sending errors:  UI for handling invalid addresses, esp. with lists
	-unable to see/act on error message
	-require confirmation by user?
	-look into interface to correct errors during SMTP dialog?
  Should smtp-server=localhost become the default?
     * improved error feedback when default sendmail path is wrong.
     * it's believed this is better than "localhost not found" or
     * connection refused.  Changed linux default to /usr/sbin.
