3.5.2.15 Controlling Sender Fields

Commands sender and nosender are used to manipulate the contents of the sender field list.

If the command sender is used without arguments, it displays the contents of the sender field list. If arguments are given, each argument is appended to the sender field list. For example:

? sender
Sender address is obtained from the envelope
? sender mail-followup-to reply-to
? sender
mail-followup-to
reply-to
? sender from
? sender
mail-followup-to
reply-to
from

Command nosender is used to remove items from the sender field list:

? sender
mail-followup-to
reply-to
from
? nosender reply-to
? sender
mail-followup-to
from

When used without arguments, this command clears the list:

? nosender
Sender address is obtained from the envelope
