You're assuming too much.  Just because a message is sent by someone's
authority does NOT mean that they want to receive any kind of automatic
notifications.  It would be perfectly reasonable for a CEO to send out
a message of the form:

From: CEO
Reply-to: customer-relations
Sender: secretary
Return-Path: bounce-address  (set on delivery from MAIL FROM)
To: customers:;

Why should the secretary get them? Why shouldn't the customer-relations
get them? You are essentially arguing that the messaging applications
should not communicate on the off-chance that the boss might get annoyed
one day.

What if my boss sends a message to the staff on *my* behalf. What then?
