Thanks again for your answer, Martin.

But this behaviour is a little bit confusing, isn't it? I mean, can't we have problems (even legal problems) by letting the system composes mails in the name of someone who didn't authorize it? (the original answer was addressed exclusively to 'catchall', not to 'customer@'...)

Yes the sender will be kept but the reply-to address will be the catchall
