Modifications to listserv
I don't know if this would be able to go into the listserver.js or if it would have to be coded into the mail server itself...
however, the behavior I would talk about where mail TO is constant as being TO the mailing list address even though the mail is being delivered to a single users email account. The ability to do this is simple...
When the mail sever sends the mail, the RCPT TO command sets where the mail server will send the mail, of course you know that already, however, when the DATA command is sent, and extra headers are put in (X-Mailer, Reply-To, etc) as part of the mail message, the message TO header can be set there as DIFFERENT from the RCPT TO mail address given to the mail server.
So the conversation goes like this:
HELO server.com 250 mailhost.isp.com Hello server.com [18.104.22.168], pleased to meet you MAIL FROM: email@example.com 250 firstname.lastname@example.org... Sender ok RCPT TO: email@example.com 250 firstname.lastname@example.org... Recipient ok DATA 354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [listname] Subject List Text .
Doing this, or rather a process like this, via telnet to port 25 of a mail server produces the results.
Where would one add this ability, or would it be too much of a can of worms?
