  Guessing a bit, that sounds a lot like the problem I had:
 It was (and still is) impossible to use the company's SMTP
 MTA to send a patch (or even an acceptable list posting),
 even if the client (MUA) wasn't going to mess things up.

  But, if you have a Gmail account, it can be done!  In fact,
 that is what I'm doing to send this reply:  Using the MUA at
 the company, but *not* using the company's SMTP.  The secret
 is Gmail now has SMTP (and IMAP) support, as well as the POP
 support they've had for awhile.  You need to enable the SMTP
 for your Gmail account, and arrange for a non-corrupting MUA
 to use Gmail's SMTP, and (assuming your company's firewall
 et al. doesn't cause issues), things may just work.

Good luck & cheers!
