I don't quite understand how.  The code in gpgkeys_mailto that gets  
the login string is:


And the From line is generated as:

   $from="$name <$login>";

You might try editing the gpgkeys_mailto script to print out (to  
stderr) those variables as they are found.  It may help shed some  
light on what is happening in your case.
