Actually, (after some thinking) no wonder and it's not qmail.

I'm logged as gour and my localhost (alias) is gaura.nitai.hr.

So, darcs uses  my localusername at localhostdomain in Return-Path.

(qmail's defaultdomain is: gaura.nitai.hr)

Mutt works since  I use profiles, .e.g

my_hdr From: Gour <gour at mail.inet.hr>
my_hdr Reply-To: Gour <gour at mail.inet.hr>

set realname="Gour"

set hostname=mail.inet.hr

and therefore everything works nicely.

So, I assume qmail working as expected - giving Right-Path which is
according to my local username & localhost domain.

So, something like mutt's: "set hostname" is required or some switch for
external mailer like mutt, or is it anticipated that dialup users should have
their ISP's fqdn as localhost's domain?

(all my outgoing mail is catched by alias before dispatching via maildirsmtp)

What do you think?
