This sounds like one I've heard before. If I remember correctly, it
goes like this:
The MTA is NOT REQUIRED to supply a valid sender address, though it
also is NOT PROHIBITED from doing so. But it's really the MUA's job,
so you should configure your mail tool to fill in a valid address
there. The difference in behavior is due to the fact that one MTA is
setup to reject an ill-formed sender address from you while the other
tries to patch it up.
I will unshutter my eyes
and go back to the scene.
I will open my heart to a blank page
and interview the witnesses.
