[horde] To: and From: formatting problem

Greetings and thank you for your response.
Ahhh, I see now. You (and others?) have mis-understood me. What I am
trying to say is that the following is placed in the From column:

To:<me at my.address.here>

Whish is to say; it places the To: (letter T, letter o and colon)
as well as my email address in this column *not* my identity, nor
just my address. So it reads:

To:me at MyAddr.ess

not just:

me at MyAddr.ess



I hope I was clearer this time.

Thank you again.
