Return path semantics of perform_delivery_sendmail vs. perform_delivery_smtp differ

Reported by Francis Irving | September 5th, 2008 @ 05:51 PM | in 3.x

My application expects the default Return-Path to be set the same as From.

This is the case in Rails 2.1 for the peform_delivery_smtp function, but not for perform_delivery_sendmail.

A patch to fix it is here:

    This patch never got into Rails. Is it still required?

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
