Same advice, but tx has broken it out to command options (-g) that you
can use on a per-site basis. Look at the message.c file to understand
or perhaps modify the behavior of the -g option. Read the manpage, I'm
just going from memory and it may not be -g at all but something else.
Whatever it is will be immediately apparent.
