    Hi, I am using Mandrill for the SMTP of all Mail on my server (yes, I know it's just intended for transactional but it works perfectly for my situation). The problem I have come across is that since Mandrill changed their policy and require all sending addresses to be verified my email forwarders have stopped.

    So by default for example when you send;
    Email from to
    Forwarder forwards mail to receives email from

    What I am looking to do as a work around is either set a static sender address for all forwarded mail;
    Sent from to
    When forwarded to the email says it is from (ideally with a reply-to header of

    Or I could have it with the from address of the original recipient;
    Sent from to
    Forwarded to with it coming from
    (Again, ideally with a reply to header of

    Does that make sense? I have activated SRS on Exim and I feel like there might be a way I can do it through there in advanced editor but any advice or pointers would be super appreciated.

    I know how I could setup an Outlook rule to get what I want but I really need it to be done from the server as messages arrive.

    Does the issue continue after enabling SRS? Have you reported the issue to Mandrill to see if they can provide you with a recommended workaround to this issue?

    Thank you.
