Neither. The poster's From: address is merged with the other addresses
in the original Reply-To:. I.e. The Poster's From: address will be there
as will all the other addresses in the original Reply-To:, but there
will be no duplicates.
What do I need to change to make this clear. Note that earlier under the
Munge From action, it says "... and adds the poster's address to the
Reply-To: header" and under the Wrap Message action it says "with the
original From: address added to the Reply-To: header".
So it seems clear to me that we're *adding* the From: address to
Reply-To: and the only question is how does first_strip_reply_to affect
this, and the answer is if it's Yes, the Reply-To: we're adding to was
stripped and is empty, and if No we're adding to the original. Do I have
to repeat that last bit further down?
Maybe instead of "the Reply-To: header" in the two action statements, I
should say "the addresses in the original Reply-To: header". I.e. "...
and adds the poster's address to the addresses in the original Reply-To:
header" and "with the original From: address added to the addresses in
the original Reply-To: header". Does that help?
