   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
   address?

   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.
