	c, err := smtp.Dial(addr)
	if err != nil {
		return err
	}
	defer c.Close()
	if err = c.Mail(r.Replace(from)); err != nil {
		return err
	}
	for i := range to {
		to[i] = r.Replace(to[i])
		if err = c.Rcpt(to[i]); err != nil {
			return err
		}
	}

	w, err := c.Data()
	if err != nil {
		return err
