Is it possible that at this point the config variable had been set in
the database, so it remained set even though I commented it from my
dotfile, hence the inability to reproduce?

Just a wild guess, as I'm not sure how the database and config file
interact with each other.

I don't want to mess further with my email at the moment, so not going
to do more testing on this right now. But I'll keep an eye on it and
update if I notice anything wrong.

Thanks again, and sorry for the delayed response.
