Well, pretty universally, From: and From_ won't match on _list_
messages, and increasingly with auto bounce handling and such, even
if the List identifies itself as the From: (say, a digest), versus
merely the Sender:, the From: may have an encoded version of the
recipient's address in it, possibly with a specific transaction code
(allowing the list mailsystem to deal with the wide variety of bounce
formats by just homing in on the address the message bounced to).
What sort of correlation are you expecting to find between the From:
and a Received: header? Perhaps you could lay out a set of expected
correlations and ask how to actually check for them.
