    Re: Autoreplies rejected by some email servers

    We are using Mercury's SYNONYM.MER database functionality to "translate" our official (internet) user e-mail addresses into the local user names and vice versa.

     * FJR too, but ...

    When activating the autoresponse function in Pmail, Mercury is using "at@domain.com" as sender's address for autoresponse mails.

    ... as shown in posting above in my case Mercury replaces "from" with synonym.

    Hmm ... maybe the difference is, that my Mercury runs with NDS-module for accessing eDirectory of Novell Netware and takes synonym directly from there instead of using synonym.mer?! Seems Mercury behaves different depending on infrastructure.

    Anyway - the problem of Anaglypta remains the same in all cases: Mercury includes a mail-from but doesn't inculde an envelope-from and more and more servers reject mails, if it is not filled.

    At the beginning I was annoyed about it, but in the meantime I believe this "feature" has also advantages.

    No - if the recipient of the autoreply can't identify who is autoreplying (because username and synonym may not be similar enough), he may wonder, why he is getting no answer. Sorry - not acceptable.
