Subject Re: Bounce, outgoing reverse path and fromAddress

James does bounce back to the envelope sender (indirectly, using the
Return-path header, not mail.getSender()), but with a NOT null reverse path.
So the problem is that the bounce may bounce back. I.e. the bounce should be
sent with
MAIL FROM: <>

As I see currently it is sent with MAIL FROM: <postmaster@...>
(for example, this is the default).
