I am setting the return-path using the send method and the senderEmail parameter, which is working just fine. In the email server log, I can see that it is being used in the 'mail from' command, just as it should be. One quirk - in the actual email, the return-path header has the same address, plus a prefix 'no-reply=38='. This isn't actually causing me problems, but it seems odd, and I wonder why it is there. Is there something I can do to prevent it?

It's something that your mail server adds. Perhaps, some setting in its configuration. You'll need to look into that direction for the clues.

Try sending to non-existent address and see where the bounce message is sent to. If it's sent to senderEmail, you're fine then.

I just this morning replaced an old smtp component (from another vendor) with MailBee. An email sent before the change did not have the added prefix in the return-path header. The email sent after the change (using MailBee) did have the prefix. Nothing in the email server was changed.

I did a little more testing. I received two emails using MailBee. One had the prefix, and the other did not. Both were handled by exactly the same code. They had different 'from' and 'reply-to' addresses, but were otherwise similar.

As I said originally, this isn't causing me any trouble. I just wonder if you have any ideas why this would happen.

No idea. If I saw two logs of SMTP session (one which leads to this prefix and another one doesn't), I'd be able to notice the difference.
