msmtp: allow sending control emails to mailing lists

It is common to have subscription to mailing list foo@example.com to be
controlled by mailing to foo-request@example.com. With algorithm that
derives "from" address from "to" address, it results in control emails
being reject since they are sent from non-subscribed email.

This little hack makes sure that "from" addresses generated for
foo@example.com and foo-request@example.com are the same, so
subscription management works transparently without setting "from"
header manually.
