Problem is, it doesn't always work. It doesn't work for old addresses
(me at old-isp.example.com), for mangled addresses (me at isp.com.invalid),
for newsgroup posts, for mail with no "To:" (only "Cc:"), possibly more.

I think that in the outbox folder (and only it), the recipients (either
"To:", "Cc:" or "Newsgroup:") should always be displayed, and the
"From" header should be changed to "Recipients". Or make the option you
cited above do that. Isn't it always what the user want and expect?

And that, IMHO, should be fixed in *all* folders, not just the outbox
