Please, reports about problems with AMSAT mail aliases should come to me, not to AMSAT-BB. It's off-topic for AMSAT-BB, since it's not about amateur radio satellites.

We do carry through the originator's true identity. That might be considered wrong by some administrators, but it's the right thing to do.

When the copy arrives at your system, it bears an originator's address (the true one) that doesn't match the identity of the system doing the delivery. That's a little different than what you said.

If you have trouble receiving mail through your mail alias for this reason, and you can't change the minds of your mail administrators about it, then a quick solution is to get another email account somewhere else and use that one to receive your mail alias messages.
