From address erroneously set from x-original-to header

Reported by Alan Schmitt | December 26th, 2011 @ 05:32 PM

Here are the full headers that resulted in the email from address set to "aquamacs-devel@aquamacs.org" instead of my subscribed address "alan.schmitt@polytechnique.org" when I replied.

    • State changed from “new” to “reproduced”
    • Assigned user set to “benny”

    I am going to try to fix this by doing two things when deriving a From address:

    • Cross-check all email addresses found in delivery related headers AND the 'for' part of Received headers with addresses explicitly configured in the account settings. The first one found is used.
    • Otherwise use X-Original-To if available, but never rely on a X-Original-To header if a Delivered-To header is added later.

    At least that is what I'm considering right now. It would work for the example in this ticket where the correct address only appears in a Received header:

    Received: from relay.andrew.cmu.edu (RELAY-02.ANDREW.CMU.EDU [128.2.10.85])

    • State changed from “reproduced” to “fixcommitted”

    You can hold down ⌥ while clicking “Check Now” in the “Software Update” preferences pane. That should give you r2670 with a fix, but it has not been tested much. (In general, any version obtained via ⌥ should not be considered stable. They are most often debug versions.)

    Thanks in advance for trying it.

    The fix involves the first item in the previous comment to this ticket.

    I will give it a try, but as I'm not currently using MailMate as my default mail program, it may take a few days.

    I have just tried and I confirm this fixes my problem. Thanks!

    There is only one header with your address:

    From: Alan Schmitt <alan.schmitt@inria.fr>
    

    But I assume that is only because you wrote the message.

    The only fix I can think of is to ignore the X-Original-To header if it was added before any Received headers. There is a test build with that change now. Release notes:

    • Improved From address derivation. Now any X-Original-To or X-Delivered-To headers are ignored if they come after any Received headers.

    Alan Schmitt January 13th, 2012 @ 12:49 PM

    Yes, I wrote the message I was replying to.

    I tested it and it works. Thanks!
