firstname.lastname@example.org is archived in the BTS
(http://b.d.o/nnn) *and* forwarded to the submitter but _not_ forwarded
to the maintainer. Iirc it sets
Reply-To: <yoursenderaddress>, nnn-quiet@bdo
in the forwared mail, so the submitter's answer will not reach the
maintainer either, as it is sent to -quiet.
Iirc the bts is now smart enough to not show a mail sent
twice on http://b.d.o/nnn.
