A bounce address is an email address to which bounce messages are delivered. There are many variants of the name, none of them used universally, including return path, reverse path, envelope from, envelope sender, MAIL FROM, 5321-FROM, return address, From_, Errors-to, etc. It is not uncommon for a single document to use several of these names. All of these names refer to the email address provided with the MAIL FROM command during the SMTP session. Ordinarily, the bounce address is not seen by email users and, without standardization of the name, it may cause confusion.
