 Behind a gateway ?  Tricky.  Auto-Replies go to the address in the Return-

Hmmm.  This is an interesting misunderstanding of what I am trying to have the

This is intended to be about an MUA doing the "reply" command. The "reply"

I am not used to hearing anyone say that any sort of "reply" goes to the 
return-path.  Delivery and Failure notices, sure, but not "replies".

In any event, the idea that a delivered address would not work through a 
gateway sort of highlights why I characterize it as a test.

In other words, one of the goals of a gateway needs to be that it keeps 
addresses usable.

At least, that was the point I was/am trying to have the document make.
