If you recieve a meeting mail sent from Outlook and forward this mail to a Mozilla account you new mail will look something like this: --- From: OutlookSender <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sender: OutlookReciever <email@example.com> To: Mozilla <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- Meaning that the origional mail was sent from "OutlookSender <email@example.com>" to "OutlookReciever <firstname.lastname@example.org>" who then forwarded to "Mozilla <email@example.com>" In Outlook I think they call it "On behalf mails" When reading the forwarded mail in Mozilla it shows up like the From is "OutlookSender <firstname.lastname@example.org>" when in fact the real sender of the forwarded mail is "OutlookReciever <email@example.com>" Does this just happen because Outlook brakes the specs?
It sounds to me like you're descibing "secretary-sent" in the language of RFC 822, section A.2. If it's true that OutlookSender is the executive who gets his/her secretary to send his email for him/her, and OutlookReceiver is the secretary, then I think we're doing the right thing. If Outlook shows the Sender rather than the From, and there's no Reply-To in the headers, than they're doing the wrong thing with respect to RFC 822. As I understand your scenario, this bug is invalid, but let me know if I've misunderstood.
