You're talking about headers such as "Delivered-To:" and "Envelope-to:"
when REPLYING to messages. I agree to that to a certain point, but the quote
above wasn't related to any such headers, but to NEW messages instead, where
none of these headers does exist at all anyway.

Right. I wouldn't have any objection to support "Received:" as well - or
even to replace "Delivered-To:" and "Envelope-to:" (Exim) with "Received:"
(although it may be a bit harder to parse). Probably this would even be the
better solution rather than supporting this and that non-standard header.

But even this would not cover the scenario of a new message. That's why I'm
still throwing in the idea of an additional addressbook option.
