Hard to say ... I sent mail to an impossible address with the envelope sender
pointing to a plussed address for me on a machine running Sendmail 8.9.0 --
but it will deliver mail for me that I can read on servers in the domain, I
cannot log into the machine that runs 8.9.0 and honors plussing.
It was bounced to the full plussed address.
Then I tried sending mail to an impossible address on the 8.9.0 machine with
the envelope directed to a plussed address for me here, where the Sendmail
version appears to be 8.8.7. The plussing was honored for the bounce, but
the item was refused in consultation and never got into the 8.9.0 machine.
Perhaps someone who can log into a machine running 8.9.0 can throw more light
on the subject.
I'm assuming that the colon in Mr. Neff's "From:" is a typo and he was set-
ting the envelope sender to the plussed address, not just the RFC822 From:
