    5 Note that this patch addresses the issue where "''wordpress generated emails do not have an appropriate envelope address (reply-to header)"'', which could cause servers to reject mail (when envelope is not a fqdn - misconfigurayion) or classify them as SPAM (when envelope is a shared system domain, see below). Also should the default envelope be a valid address, the bounces will go there, and not in a configurable (webmaster) email.

    77On the other hand there is another issue (the old #5273),''' that will reappear''' if this patch is applied. This is the ''"wordpress generated emails -erroneously- specify the from header address as a non configurable wordpress[@]sitedomain.com email"'', which when combined with the envelope address fix above, will cause some recipient SMTPs to reject the mail due to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callback_verification callback (callout) verification] failure.
