Some of the mails eBay sends are forged to look like they came from
another eBay member - if you ask a question about an item, for
example. They don't just forge the reply-to (which would be fine), or
the From: header (which might also be OK), they forge the envelope
sender as well. Which isn't.
So if one of your users asks a question about an eBay item which
another of your users is selling, you get incoming mail with your
domain in the envelope sender.
