#983 Bug in autoreply


There seems to be a bug in the sendmail-module, to be precise, the autoreply.pl. If you enable an alias with auto-reply, then it send the reply mail from the first address in the to list..

This is not always correct, for instance when the mail is sent to more then one person then it is possible that the first address in the list is not the one on which the autoreply is configured..

    This is a known problem, and one that cannot be solved
    automatically because the autoreply program does not
    know which address it received email on. To work
    around it, add a line like :
    From: realaddress@yourdomain.com
    followed by a blank line to the top of the autoreply text
    file. The address should be the one that autoreplies
    will appear to come from.
