Thank you very much for new feature(s).

In order to test "send" feature I prepared a small patch for wxruby project
(Gentoo ebuild) and send it to the author.

However, even after sending it few times, he does not receive anything (I even
CC-ed patch to my email and received it :-).

Today I prepared a patch once again and take a close(r) look at the message 
(since I'm on dialup on all the messages are caught by my local qmail'l alias.)

It looks that the problem (for dialup usrs) is how darcs prepares the message.

Here is the header:

Return-Path: <gour at gaura.nitai.hr>
Delivered-To: alias-isdn-wxruby at qualitycode.com

X-Qmail-Scanner-1.16: added fake MIME-Version header
MIME-Version: 1.0

The problem is, imho, that Return-Path: header contains: gaura.nitai.hr which
is just my localhost domain, but not fqdn, and therefore destination server 
is (probably) marking the message as a spam.

When I use mutt as a normal mailer, all the messages have correct Return-Path:
header containg mail.inet.hr domain (which is fqdn).

What can be done that dialup users can more easily send darcs patches?

Maybe some switch to use external mailer or ..?
