~sircmpwn/aerc2#316:
add User-Agent header to outgoing mail

It will help me recall which UA I used when sending mail via aerc; it also promotes aerc a little bit by getting evidence of its existence out there; it could also be useful for diagnosing bugs (esp. if a version was included in the string). Example from another MUA:

User-Agent: NeoMutt/20180716

I'd rather not have that on by default... I hate it if tools do that.

Instead of that, I'd rather see the capability to add arbitrary header to outgoing emails (maybe via the templates?)

So that allows people to set such a header if they really want to do that

That would be very useful for other reasons (and would address this feature request)

I was under the impression that most, if not all, MUAs set it. But I could be wrong. (and that doesn't change your objection to it of course, which is fine, I understand that)

That's the second thing I turn off. Right after the $#@& signatures like sent from my iPhone and the like

I definitely hate those ;)
