What is identd good for other than hacking?

Sorry about not having my system available to gather more info. The identd service
is one of the services that I disable. The previous hypothesis about being logged
in as root being the case of the identity confusion sounds like a likely cause.
(Why it would do what it do is another question.) Hey, maybe I will try, what is
it...KMail? If another e-mail client doesn't cause a problem, then Netscape
Messenger would be the culprit.

BTW, my wife's Lotus Notes server will display the word "root" in the message when
I send from my root account under Linux.
