Play with domtrans lines in config file maybe ?

Otherwise the 'tx' patches may do what you want; I added the idea of
"verbosity levels" that you can use in the command line of ifnews/ifmail;
so you can configure, by uplink/downlink, the verbosity of kludges and
header lines. with levels < 1 when the machine name in the From: is the
same as the one returned by gethostname() then the From: is not put on
the outgoing FTN message.
