If there's an error send back a bounce message to you
rather than exiting the sendmail command with a non-zero
status and printing an error message or dropping the message
into dead.letter. I.e. always accept the message (IIRC,
really rushed right now).

You. Well, the From: header will be OK, but the envelope
sender (remember this? :-) will be paulj at itg (sendmail
sees that you're SU-ed and gets your real UID, I think).
Most users won't see the envelope sender, though...
