      Description

      Due to some sort of filtering, when moodle trys to send emails with the admin account's email address set to a non-local one, it gets blocked and the server makes a non-delivery report (which also does not get delivered). When the admin user sets their email back to an internal one, it works again. This can mean that the admin cannot receive messages.

      A setting in the email area to specify this reply-to address would be great. Maybe NDRs could be re-mailed to the admin account when they are received, witht the internal address as the return path?
