I was just trying to implement what was suggested by the list owner. What I do
or do not tell my users is not any of your concern.

pine and mutt are not used on this system. Hence, RTFM for pine and mutt would
be a waste of time. FWIW, I spent several hours reading manuals until I did
find the solution which had nothing to do with pine nor mutt.

You are wrong. I inserted the modification into sendmail.cf at the appropriate
location. Since sendmail is both a MTA and MDA, it was the logical point of
insertion since I had no control over what MUA might be used. 

Sorry you did not have anything useful to contribute. In spite of your less
than helpful tone and advice, I have found the solution and implemented same.

I see no reason to waste any more of the list's time on this subject. I
recommend you consider adding my name to your ignore list.
