Undesirable address rewriting by ZMailer (Resend)

[Sorry if this is a duplicate; for some reason I think
my original mail didn't get sent properly to the list.]


in ZMailer 2.99.56, it seems that when we mail to


where the "host example.com" looks like

   example.com is an alias for www.example.com.
   www.example.com has address

   (i.e., instead of an MX or A record as expected,
   they have a CNAME instead)

then ZMailer will silently rewrite the envelope
address as


In some cases, this will cause example.com's mailer
to reject the mail because www.example.com is not
configured to receive mail.

Is this a known behaviour, and is there a way to
disable it? Thanks very much in advance.
