Feature Request - reply address masking for List-Post header

Postby mbourne1 » Thu Apr 17, 2014 9:46 pm

Not sure if this is the right place for feature requests, but here goes...

Reply address masking is handy for replying back to the original sender without having to worry about changing the From: address. But a number of mailing lists leave the From: header set to the original sender, while adding a List-Post: header which mail clients use to provide a "Reply to List" feature. However, the List-Post: header is not munged by spamgourmet, so selecting "Reply to List" replies from my real address direct to the list unless I remember to change either the From: address. At best, the mailing list blocks the mail as my real address is not subscribed, so I have to resend with the right From: address (not too onerous). However, many lists let the email through after moderation, exposing my real address - particularly bad for lists which are publicly archived.

Any chance of masking the List-Post: header (and perhaps other related headers) in a similar way to the From: address?

Note that some lists set headers like
Code: Select all
List-Help: <mailto:...@...?subject=help>
where the "?subject..." part would need to be retained after munging.
