Right, a very good annotation about not using the mail() function, but
to use i.e.

http://phpmailer.sourceforge.net/

or Pear's class

http://pear.php.net/package/Mail

Instead of a fully featured MTA a submitter can be enough, which hands
the outgoing mail over to a mail hub (which then typically masquerades
...).
