User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/56.0.2924.87 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

I receive a email from "noreply@example.com" and answer to it.


Actual results:

I will likely get a mailer return for a non existent / not used mailbox.


Expected results:

If I click on "answer" it should popup a warning that this recipient would likely not receive mails as such addresses are mainly used for sending. In the ACP there should be an option to add more keywords like "no-reply".

The reason for this idea is mainly because of some of my forum users that try to answer notification mails. And do not think they answer to containing texts. Our notification mails contain only the link to the subscribed thread or pm. I know that because my noreply mailbox exists and I forward all "Re:" mails to our main mailbox and try to help those users to find the correct way to answer. But finally I think it would be better the mail program stops the user before sending such mails, because not many websites have an existing noreply-mailbox.
