Please note the reply-to field above from the message that I just received from
you. This indicates that a reply should go to email@example.com, however,
what I have discovered as a result of your note is that this all depends on the
mailer being used. If I use UNIX mail or VMS mail it wants to send the reply to
firstname.lastname@example.org, but if I use POPmail or the UNIX mh mail handeler
the reply goes to mednet. This I do not understand. Therefore I am CCing this
message to email@example.com (the people who wrote majordomo).
Maybe they can give us some ideas?? The reply-to in the mednet.config is
firstname.lastname@example.org.. I changed this a couple of days ago. It is obvious
that for some reason certain mail utilities use the From: rather than the
Reply-to: field. This maybe something you can configure at the user level.. I
Thanks for clueing me into this glich or misconfiguration??
