Sure. But if the sender has set the "Reply-To" header, that should indicate
to the email client that regardless of the address of the sender, the
message should instead go to the address of the "Reply-To". That's the
way it's supposed to work and that's what Igor is pointing out.

Due to the heavy volume on this list, it's policy not to pursue reported
problems unless they're reported against the current version. The reasoning
here is simple. A bug could be fixed in the current version so spending
time tracking down the cause in an older version can end up being wasted
effort. Of course, you're always free to maintain whatever version you
like. I just wanted to let you know that any future bug reports you may
make to the list might just invoke the "upgrade to current" response before
anyone spends any time thinking further about your report.
