Marcel and Rob,

Thanks for the suggestions.

But: i can't use a different FROM and Reply-To as the Application which
sends the mails only supports one sender address (unfortunately).

A NULL router is also not an options, as i want customers accidentially
replying to such an address to be aware, that their reply wasn't read by a
human - thus i need a bounce.

A Rule with a react with or such would also not be an option as i want to
bounce as early as possible and not waste any cycles which these mails
(virus / spam processing and such).

What i need is a way, to configure CGP to allow a CLIENT IP to use an
"unknown account" as the sender address. Currently it refuses "unknown
accounts" used as sender even if verify return-path is set to NON-Clients
and the party using the unknown address as FROM-Address is in the Client IP

I still run CGP 4.3.12 by the way.
