Hi (Stephan?),
is it a new feature of dovecot 2.3 /pigeonhole 0.5 that a sieve "redirect" changes the envelope sender of
a redirected mail or simply a bug ?

A sends mail to B, B redirects to C
C sees B (not A!) as envelope sender.
It is not a problem if C gets the mail but if that mail bounces
for various reasons it goes back to B and A will never know about this.

I thick this is came with 2.3 / pigeonhole 0.5 ?

# 2.3.1 (c5a5c0c82): /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
# Pigeonhole version 0.5.devel (61b47828)
# OS: Linux 2.6.32-696.23.1.el6.x86_64 x86_64 CentOS release 6.9 (Final)
