Ok, now I got it. I didn't know that git send-email adds the From tag in
the body if sendemail.from differs from the author, but that makes sense

I just checked and with my old mail setup, the SMTP server was
respecting my sender address from the client (send-email, thunderbird).

The new setup uses DavMail Gateway to send via the companies Exchange
server and it just ignores my sender from the client and sends with the
reversed name as stored in the Exchange server.

I don't like sending mail with reversed names (people start calling me
by my last name), but using a different SMTP server would likely cause
trouble with some recipients using SPF for spam detection.

So I guess I have to convince our IT to change the names, if even
Oh, why do such small things always cause so much trouble?
