User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de-DE; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041027 Firefox/1.0RC1

I would like to see the possibility to change HELO/EHLO string. Right now it is
the current IP address in brackets. For local networks, I consider this a
security bug, because attackers may know your local network infrastructure.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Not a security exploit, clearing confidential flag. Changing to enhancement. I'm
not a mail guy, but judging from archived threads on various developer and
standards lists sending the IP address is fairly common behavior of many mail
clients.
