On Behalf Of

Whenever I send mail from one of my multitude of mail accounts using GMail as the client, people sometimes get an annoying “From ben@alltooflat.com on behalf of benstein@gmail.com”

I never knew why they insisted on doing this, but it turns out that otherwise mail will get caught in spam filers because they assume it came from a forged/open mail relay (mp3).  Makes sense.
