It's a X-$WHATEVER-header.
As mentioned by Nicolas: Postfix uses the Delivered-To header for for
mail delivery loop detection.

Could you know which funny sieve/.forward files users place on a mail
system? ;-)

Yeah, the X-Original-To header is prepended to the headers. So the user
can see it if she/he looks into the mail headers.
This info may also be available in a "Received: from …for <recipient> …"

If the X-Original-To header was prepended, users do not have to update
their sieve rules, when the admin updates to Dovecot v2.0.0 with lmpt.

Sieve envelope:
I'm using it, since I'm using Dovecot v2.0.alpha?
It's just one require argument more.

The trapper recommends today: cafebabe.1003217 at localdomain.org
