We have been using simplemail for years at our company. There is now a requirement that bounced emails are returned to administrators, not to the sender. The RFC states the Return-Path email header is for this purpose.

When I work with simplemail, though, I notice that using the CustomHeaders method, the Return-Path header is placed BELOW all other headers. The RFC states that this should be the FIRST header. This causes the Return-Path header to fail to be used by many email systems.

I would like to use simplemail and also use the Return-Path header.

Your advice is much appreciated,
Louis Nelson

the customheaders cannot be placed at another position as at the end of all other headers.

However, for your case, you just want to have delivery failures to another email address. Please use the ErrorsTo Property to set this email address. This will write the "Errors-To" header which is meant for email delivery failures.

For further information about the Errors-To header, see RFC 2076 ( )
