I'm the author of the MailServ (http://iquest.com/~fitz/www/mailserv)
web interface. I recently stopped using an "Errors-to" header, and
now use sendmail to set the envelope return address. My question is:
where should I send the error messages?
I currently send the error messages to a built-in address (my own
address) or to an "errors" address that can be specified as a hidden
variable in the form.
However, ListProcessor v6.0 uses the envelope return address as the
subscription address. So when a user tried to subscribe to a
ListProcessor list, it subscribed me instead.
Report this as a bug to the maintainers of ListProcessor.
Handle the problems it casues manually until they fix it.
I could instead set the envelope return address to the
subscriber's address, but what would happen if the user mistyped his
Any opinions as to what I should do?
p.s. I know that ListProc 6.0 has a patch to use the "From:" header
instead, but that is not always under my control.
