you give the impression that you don't know what ``variable envelope reply
paths'' are. the fact that a bounce gets back to qmail means the software
can determine the orginal destination. i think that's the essence of
bounce processing. this technique is sufficient powerful that it forms the
basis for what l-soft calls bounce-free processing in the current release
of listserv. it's sufficiently useful that i'm surprised that everyone with
a non-trivial source of bounces doesn't insist that their mta support
of course if the bounce is sent to originator or the the list then the mlm
won't get a chance to process it.
