Currently, I am excluding the From: field entirely using 
the following markup in the rcfile.


Thanks for any insights,

The trick is to use SUBJECTHEADER and HEADBODYSEP in the combination.
For example, you "null" out FIELDSBEG and use SUBJECTHEADER to start
the message header (where you can use $FROMNAME$).  Or "null" FIELDSEND
and use HEADBODYSEP if you want to tack onto the end of the message

Or more simply (in your case) since all you care about is the
subject, date, and from, you can EXCS all fields, and roll your own
using resource variables.  And for greater flexibility, null out
SUBJECTHEADER and use TOPLINKS or MSGHEAD to place your custom
header.  This way you can change the formatting at a later time
if required (SUBJECTHEADER is fixed for a message after the message
is initally written).
