a user's forwarding address at SMTP time;
ahh, right.

something about email being s/f, and therefore not direct.

requiring 'the next hop' to have complete knowledge doesn't work. requiring a particular hop to the 'the last hop' also causes problems.

hmm. i wonder if there is a lesson, here, for path registration schemes like spf and sender-id?

tnx.
