Poor alum wouldn't have a clue what to do with a bounced email. Like
PCs on many home LANs, it only sends. When I'm at home, all my emails
leave this one PC as it makes filing and backing up the Sent-mail
copies easier. So what you see there is mutt on alum sending an email
to exim on alum which will rewrite the From as an address in the
UK. Again, it would be pointless to bounce mail back to the point at
which it enters the Internet, my ISP, as it would never get seen by me
(assuming they found somewhere to stick it).

Cheers,
David.
