comment Should I be adding aliases to /etc/profile instead of /etc/basrhc?
You should be using shell functions, not aliases. Aliases are less featureful, more brittle, and offer no advantages over shell functions.

comment postfix/procmail - preventing duplicate email in procmailrc
That's just a workaround. The real solution is to handle transport in transport. See porkmail.org/era/procmail/mini-faq.html#virtdom

comment Procmail: Inject sender address into the message body
If you want the sender's email terminus and nothing else (i.e. just parsley@graceland.example.net pro Elvis (the King) Parsley <parsley@graceland.example.net>), remember also the slightly tricky formail -rtzxTo: which generates a reply message's headers, then extracts the To: address from them. (The -t option creates a preference for e.g. the Reply-To: address which may or may not be what you want. Both -r and -rt are decidedly more complex than just extracting the value of From:.)

comment How do I deal with a compromised server?
Given the choice between an anonymous Python script and a documented, (somewhat) supported, well-understood standard solution, you are hoping they will pick the former?
