The *_these_nonmembers addresses and regexps are matched against a
single address which may or may not be the From: address of the message.
The address used is the one returned by Mailman's Message.get_sender()
method and is determined as follows:
Return the address considered to be the author of the email.
This can return either the From: header, the Sender: header or the
envelope header (a.k.a. the unixfrom header). The first non-empty
header value found is returned. However the search order is
determined by the following:
- If mm_cfg.USE_ENVELOPE_SENDER is true, then the search order is
Sender:, From:, unixfrom
- Otherwise, the search order is From:, Sender:, unixfrom
