Using "Sender" in replcomps

1995-05-03 14:01:53
  The line in the default replcomps, which goes like this:


  should have "%?{sender}" removed per RFC 822:

        o   The  "Sender"  field  mailbox  should  NEVER  be  used
            automatically, in a recipient's reply message.

  unless a nearby paragraph is very loosely interpreted:

        This recommendation is intended  only  for  automated  use  of
        originator-fields  and is not intended to suggest that replies
        may not also be sent to other recipients of messages.   It  is
        up  to  the  respective  mail-handling programs to decide what
        additional facilities will be provided.

  The uppercase NEVER is rather emphatic, however.
