Header Fields Known to the MTA

From Messaging Server Technical Reference Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The MTA maintains an internal list of "known" header fields. This list is used to perform and in some cases optimize various operations the MTA performs on message headers. In particular, the MTA's header trimming facilities are built on top of this list and only the specific fields on this list can be individually manipulated using header trimming. (The header addition facility, on the other hand, does not depend on this list in the same way and can be used to add arbitrary headers.)

The header fields currently on the list are:
