I know I don't understand it!
Maybe a more detailed use-case would help? (Tony?)
I want to make certain that what we're building with policies doesn't
prevent eCard senders or News agencies from doing what they currently
do. They should be able to 1) send a message to someone on my behalf
while 2) marking themselves as the sender and 3) being able to sign the
message. According to 2822, this minimally requires support for
RFC2822.Sender as well as RFC2822.From.
For example, consider these scenarios:
DKIM-Signature: ... d=hallmark.com; ...
Subject: Happy birthday from Tony
DKIM-Signature: ... d=newyorktimes.com; ...
Subject: some news story
These need to be validated against the sender.
Yes, there are a variety of issues. And to properly deal with this
issue, we also need to deal with Sender/d= above being "@bigbadguy.com".
DKIM is not sufficient in and of itself, as we all know. But we need to
be able to support these scenarios somehow.
If we don't let this be done using Sender:, then we need to have some
other way of doing it. My choice is to support the 2822 way of doing it,
which says we need to support Sender:.
NOTE WELL: This list operates according to
