correct method to "bounce" a message
I have two or three email addresses that are published on the web for
particular purposes to do with a local organization. When a message
arrives that is genuine rather than spam, I send it on to the intended
person (secretary, treasurer, etc) using MPro's "bounce" facility
The advantage of "bounce" rather than "forward" is that the treasurer
(say) sees the message in her inbox as coming from the original sender
rather than from me. (Is not this the intention of "bounce"?)
MPro's bounce behaviour, though, puzzles me. The manual doesn't say
much about it. It seems that the new recipient is added as a BCC and
the original message is re-sent -- with the result that I get another
copy of it. Is this the way that "bounce" is meant to work? I don't
recall this happening in the days of Marcel when I bounced a message.
Also, tiresomely, I find that I have to go to the Outgoing Queue and
re-open the bounced message and check that my own address as "Sender"
has been filled in (as distinct from "From", which of course shows the
original sender). Sometimes Sender is filled in as me but sometimes
it isn't, in which case I have to do it manually, or else my ISP's
server (understandably) refuses to transmit the outgoing message from
somebody it doesn't know. I haven't fathomed out why MPro fills it in
sometimes but not other times.
Am I misunderstanding something?
