This is a straw man argument. For whom Majordomo is acting does not change
the fact that it is acting for another. There is absolutely no question
that Majordomo is acting for another: that is the sole purpose of
According to RFC822, any agent (aside from the MTA itself) that acts for
another in the process of delivering mail is the sender of that message.
Message senders are clearly distinct from message originators. Message
senders are prohibited from creating or modifying originator headers such
as Subject, From and Reply-To. Therefore, as a message sender, Majordomo
is prohibited from creating or modifying Reply-To headers.
I suggest you read RFC822 in its entirety instead of taking bits and pieces
of it out of context. Those that wrote it are not stupid; they understood
then exactly the kinds of problems that would arise from injudicious
alteration of header information, so they clearly defined the roles of
various agents involved in the delivery of Internet mail to prevent those
problems from arising.
