This is header of mail that i have received on my email ID:-achal.tomar58@gmail.com from mailchimp:

Return-Path: bounce-mc.us2_6034522.1358370-achal.tomar58=gmail.com@mail76.us2.mcsv.net>
Received: from mail76.us2.mcsv.net (mail76.us2.mcsv.net. [])
        by mx.google.com with ESMTP id er6si2501863qab.62.2012.;

My query is how they add the Sent to: header to the Return-Path dynamically,i also want to implement the same in my mail server,i have tried address masquereading in postfix but it was not of much help may be i am misssing something. My mail server has postfix as an MTA and i have centOs 5 as an OS.

That format is called VERP.


This can either be generated by the sending application, or can be configured in MTA.
