Ah, but of course... See, my question was stupid after all... One
should always keep the "graph of interconnectedness within postfix"
squarely at the front of ones mind, now shouldn't one:-).
But how to solve this in an as nonintrusive way as possible?
Go to decoding and "sendmail ad at re.ss"? I might be a bit dense today
((too:-) mainly due to a shortage of hours -> shortage of sleep), but
I don't see many options that make sense.
