I just had a look at the SA code. Unfortunately even though the SA wiki
suggests putting the Envelope-From in the Received Header SA will not
use it for all of its tests. I suspect this is a bug and filed one just
in case.

If however you set envelope_sender_headers in the config, it will be
used regardless of its position. It does not need to be at the top
(which I do not like at all anyways).

I am in favour of this solution since this will definately work. There
might be some screwup with fetchmail etc. though depending on your
configuration. But for "normal" MTA operations this probably is the way
to go.

Kind regards,
