    Got a strange one here.


    I work in tech support and I took a call from a customer who was getting the error (can't remember the exact details): return address not specified


    Now in some cases does the sender HAVE to enter in the reply-to address for the recipents mail server to accept it? Even if it's the same as the sender's email address?

    Would this be set up on the mail server as a security measure maybe?


    One thing I forgot to mention, the email was being sent to korea (don't know if it's north or south).

    it normally means that she was either replying to an email with an invalid or malformed address
    or she entered an incorrect address


    The only other cases (very rarely)I have heard of, are where an ISP has set up anti spam measures and the email address of the sender does not correspond with the senders domain, in that case the receiving server will look for a return address with the same domain as the smtp server it has been sent from
