Hi, recently changes were made to the Evergreen and OpenSRF mailing lists that will replace the From address with that of the list, moving the From address to Reply-To. This was done in order to prevent those domains that have DMARC or SPF setup from having their posts rejected on delivery since they fail both tests.

There are 2 changes users will notice. First, when replying most mail clients will *add* the Reply-To header to the From address rather than replacing it. The net effect of this is that all replies will also go to the original poster AND the list by default. If you are regularly in the habit of replying directly to a poster this is an important change to note. If you are in the habit of using Reply All to reply to the list nothing really changes for you here.

The second change is that the From header now says “User Name via List” rather than just the user name. This is just a cosmetic change.
