On the current internet, you should expect no mapping between login
account / smtp server and an actual email address.  (Although some of the
current anti-spam proposals want to reinstitute such a thing.)  In other
words, it is perfectly valid to just change your header and send through
your normal smtp server.

(Personally, I avoid using my @apache.org address unless I am speaking in
some way as a representitive of apache.)
