Add Emacs mail sending intergration

This (finally) adds the wrapper script I have been using with Emacs to
get my upstream mail server to accept my mail even when I sent from an
address different from that of my account.

# Work around a bug in dma (see bts:748901) that is triggered by emacs'
# message-mode which tries to comply with RFC2822 and keep header lines
# within a 78 character line length recommendation (see RFC2822 section
# 2.1.1). This may lead to addresses getting split over two lines. We
# concatenate the relevant headers.
# FIXME: dma still and rightly chokes on header that are too long! The
# concatenated headers should be split on commas.
