RFC 2822.

No it does not. Bounces are sent to the envelope sender; an MTA
generating a bounce never looks inside the email, which is where
Reply-To and all other RFC 2822 fields are defined).

He wants to check out the envelope sender, which has nothing to do
with the headers in an email field, but rather the SMTP protocol as
defined in RFC 2821.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
