It's specified as part of the SMTP protocol, not the TO: header in the
actual email.

It's a common method of indicating there was no address specified for
the TO: field, e.g. when all recipients we're BCC'd.

A quick look at RFC 5322 seems to indicate to me that


is a valid way of specifying a group in a field that expects an address

But the log snippet the OP posted had:

... failing address in "To:" header is: <Undisclosed-Recipient:;@imap.poczta.onet.pl>): "@" or "." expected after "Undisclosed-Recipient": failing address in "To:" header is: <Undisclosed-Recipient:;@imap.poczta.onet.pl>

which does look suspect. The header should be




Looks like something is using the group name 'Undisclosed-Recipient:;'
as LOCAL-PART of an address specification.
