I'm a bit hazy on this. What excatly is the "envelope
sender?" When I
setup my account in Evolution, I'm asked for only one e-mail address.
If I change this to something else, the list won't accept my posts.
Does the list not show the "from" field in the message I send to the
list, but instead show the "reply to" in place of the from when it
resends it to the subscribers - and since I didn't fill a "reply to" in,
it defaults to the "from"?
Or am I missing something?
What is weird is that on this e-mail address, I've only received spam
that came through one of the yahoo groups - nothing directly to me -
I've been using this address for two years on various different user
lists. My private address, which is only used for correspondence with
close friends and the odd family who's not afraid of the computer,
receives heaps of spam daily.
