            From:  Jones@Group.Org

or

            From:  George Jones <Jones@Group.Org>

A.2.2. Secretary-sent

George Jones logs in as Jones on his host. His secretary, who logs in as Secy sends mail for him. Replies to the mail should go to George.

            From:    George Jones <Jones@Group>
            Sender:  Secy@Other-Group

A.2.3. Secretary-sent, for user of shared directory

George Jones' secretary sends mail for George. Replies should go to George.

            From:     George Jones<Shared@Group.Org>
            Sender:   Secy@Other-Group

Note that there need not be a space between "Jones" and the "<", but adding a space enhances readability (as is the case in other examples.

A.2.4. Committee activity, with one author

George is a member of a committee. He wishes to have any replies to his message go to all committee members.

            From:     George Jones <Jones@Host.Net>
            Sender:   Jones@Host
            Reply-To: The Committee: Jones@Host.Net,
                                     Smith@Other.Org,
                                     Doe@Somewhere-Else;

Note that if George had not included himself in the enumeration of The Committee, he would not have gotten an implicit reply; the presence of the "Reply-to" field SUPERSEDES the sending of a reply to the person named in the "From" field.

A.2.5. Secretary acting as full agent of author

George Jones asks his secretary (Secy@Host) to send a message for him in his capacity as Group. He wants his secretary to handle all replies.

            From:     George Jones <Group@Host>

            Reply-To: Secy@Host

A.2.6. Agent for user without online mailbox

            Sender:   Secy-Name <Secy@Registry>
            Reply-To: Jones@Registry.

A.2.7. Agent for member of a committee

                    Smith@Other-Host,
                    Doe@Somewhere-Else
