When I send emails from neomutt, the recipient can see the following line in them: User-Agent: NeoMutt/20170113 (1.7.2)

How do I change that line in order to hide that I am using NeoMutt?

I can disable it completely with use user_agent = no in muttrc, but it would be better to change it to something common instead.

    You can add a custom header with the my_hdr command.
