Better get your comments in on
then. Section 4 begins
|4. Where to send automatic responses (and where not to send them)
|In general, automatic responses SHOULD be sent to the Return-Path field
|if generated after delivery. If the response is generated prior to
|delivery, the response SHOULD be sent to the reverse-path from the SMTP
|MAIL FROM command, or (in a non-SMTP system) to the envelope return
|address which serves as the destination for nondelivery reports.
and goes on
|The Reply-To field SHOULD NOT be used as the destination for automatic
|responses from Personal or Group Responders.
