[Pkg-exim4-users] edge exim4 *always* adds Sender: field?

( a postscript to my previous mail. The Sender: field only gets
inserted when I am setting From:, Reply-To and Errors-to: to my
real sbcglobal.net addresses via MH. If I just use a plain vanilla
"mail dye1146 at sbcglobal.net", the "Sender:" field is not inserted....)
My external mail is handled by MH (incoming via fetchmail, outgoing
sent by exim4/smarthost with specific From:, Reply-To: and Errors-to
fields set, and a trivial exim4 config). I recently upgraded from
sarge to edge, and am now getting some outgoing mail being dropped
because of the Sender: field being inserted by exim4.
I spent a few hours reading/googling, found and commented out
#local_from_check = false
#local_sender_retain = true
#untrusted_set_sender = *
section in exim4.conf.template, and this seemed to stop it from
inserting a bogus sender field. It still, however, adds a Sender:
field, but a more proper one that passes sbcglobal.net's filter
(I couldn't send mail to myself!).
It used to send "dye at slider.debian.org", which was being rejected.
It now sends "Sender: dye <dye at adsl-76-223-40-186.dsl.chcgil.sbcglobal.net>"
(my /etc/mailname gets updated whenever my non-static IP address changes).
Sarge used to NEVER insert a Sender: field, which is really what I want.
Is there a way to accomplish this?
