I haven't done this, but I can't believe it would be all that hard to do,
a simple shell script combined with a call to crypt (or whatever encrypts 
netbios passwords) then sed the replacement into the file.  Perl would
probably be better.

Though, in general, I don't recommend doing this via the web unless you plan 
on using a secure server, since web traffic is easily intercepted!

Please reply to plussier at  The corp sendmail people insist on
rewriting outgoing mail (including Reply-to: headers!) to send to
'' which we keep telling them is quite broken, but they
don't listen :)
