Why does my email show the sender as - On Behalf Of ?

Some email readers, especially Outlook and Outlook Express will show a different value in the From: header, than what was sent.

From: youremailgroup@mail-list.com On Behalf Of John Doe

The From: header is set to the sender of the message.  That is, the person who sent the message

In the above example, JohnDoe@example.com

The Return-Path: header is set to the address of the mailing list

In the above example, youremailgroup@mail-list.com

Outlook is warning their reader that those two fields have conflicting values, and showing both values
