I disagree. DSN's report the final recipient, not necessarily the
address that is in your mailing list.
This does not have to be true, which is precisely my point. The
Original-Recipient is the place to be carrying around the actual
subscriber address. Of course, it requires all the MTAs along the
forwarding path to be "playing nice"....
Bigfoot is a great example of a forwarding service provider that
obfuscates the original delivery address. And the list goes on....
