 Formally, I'd say "notification address" or some such, because the address
 is where various kinds of notifications (nondelivery, delivery, delay,
 receipt/read, and responses from robots) get sent by default.

 Informally, I'd say "bounces".  It's not as precise but it has a higher
 recognition factor.

i've tried the formal/informal distinction.

as nearly as i can tell, there is no willingness of the community to support 
multiple terms, so we need to choose exactly one.  


ps. I should respond to Carl's implied question about the intended audience 
for the email-arch document.  It is not merely the world of standards 
participants.  I am hoping the document is useful for anyone and everyone who 
needs to engage in any degree of technical discussion about Internet Mail.
