      should not modify headings (except inserting Received lines), and

   Related information:
      Some mail software expect 'Sender:' to be an e-mail address which
      you can send mail to.  However, some mail software has as the best
      authenticated sender a POP or IMAP account, which you might not be
      able to send to.  Because of this, some mail software put the POP
      or IMAP account into an X-sender header field instead of a Sender
      header field, to indicate that you may not be able to send e-mail
      to this address.  See also 'X-X-Sender'.  Another use of 'X-
      Sender:' is that some e-mail software, which wants to insert a
      'Sender:' header, will first change an existing 'Sender:' header
      to 'X-Sender'.  This use is actually often the same as that
      described above, since the new 'Sender:' is added because it is
      better authenticated than the old value.

      Even though some systems put the POP or IMAP account name into the
      'X-Sender:' instead of the Sender header field, some mail software
      tries to send to the 'X-Sender:' too.  To stop this, some systems
      have begun to use 'X-X-Sender:' to indicate an authentication of
      the sender which might not be useable to send e-mail to.  See also
      'Originator-Info:'.

   Related information:
      When a message is sent both to netnews and e-mail, this header is
      used in the e-mail version of the message to indicate which
      newsgroup it was sent to.  This header thus contains the same
      information as the 'Newsgroups:' header in the netnews version of
      the message.

3. IANA considerations

   This specification provides an initial registration of mail headers
   in the two registries defined by Registration procedures for message
   headers [1]:

   o  IANA registry for normative message headers, and

   o  IANA registry for provisional message headers.


4. Security considerations

   No security considerations are introduced by this specification
   beyond those already inherent in the use of message headers.

5. Acknowledgements

   Most of the information in this document has been derived from Jacob
   Palme's work in RFC 2076 [8] and subsequent updates [20].
