Summary: non-member post failuer

Initial Comment:
Running Mailman 2.1.5 on Red Hat Linux 3.  Have list
configured to discard posts from non-members. 
Non-member sent in auto reply containing my address has
changed information that actually came from the new
address which was not registered.  List server sent
this auto-reply from non-member to the list.

Can't find similar problem reported or bug fix.

Output list configuration, pertinent info below:

# legal values are:
#    0 = "Accept"
#    1 = "Hold"
#    2 = "Reject"
#    3 = "Discard"
generic_nonmember_action = 3

Please advise.

In a default installation, post will be determined to be
from a list member if the envelope sender or any of the
From:, Reply-To: or Sender: headers contain a member address.

You could send an off list message to the old address and
inspect the returned message to see if Return-Path: (the
envelope sender), From:, Reply-To: or Sender: contain the
old address. If so, accepting this would be expected behavior.

Note that in a situation like this, it may be preferable to
discuss the issue on mailman-users at python.org before
submitting a bug report.
