Received header - "for" missing

Post by mnemanov »


The received header written by MailEnable (standard edition 10.43) looks like this:

Received: from ([]) by with
MailEnable ESMTP; Fri, 9 Dec 2022 12:07:53 -0500

Notice that this header does not say who the email was FOR.

A typical received header from any other mail system that I have checked show who the email was for (the envelope rcpt-to).

Example from google:
Received: from ( [x.x.x.x])
by with ESMTPS id z11-20020a67d28b000000b003aa179f8c9csi447266vsi.81.2022.
for <>
(version=TLS1_2 cipher=ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256 bits=128/128);
Fri, 09 Dec 2022 09:07:59 -0800 (PST)

Is this something that can be enabled in a option somewhere?

No, sorry, the headers don't record the envelope recipient to value. It is not available as an option.
