I can't help, I don't understand. I yesterday followed up to a mail
that was additionally addressed to the <email@example.com>
mailing list and got an automatic reply telling me that the mail cannot
be delivered because I'm not subscribed. Not a bounce, but an automatic
reply to the address in the From: header, not the envelope sender
address. How do you call this?
I'd be happy if it would've been a delivery notification giving me the
opportunity to easily confirm the mail to have it finally delivered,
and, as a bonus, all subsequent mails I send, without subscribing.
That's how the firstname.lastname@example.org works. And for
subscribers, mail is delivered immediately. You didn't subscribe.
With the <email@example.com> mailing list, I now need to
guess whether the From: address needs to be subscribed or the envelope
sender address, subscribe with that address, re-send the message, losing
information about the cross-posting, and maybe do the same again if I
guessed the address wrong. I don't do that.
