qmail invoked by alias

By aasalem ·
I'm testing Gmail account so I sent a message from it to different e-mail account and I find this on the received side in its header "Received: (qmail invoked by alias); 03 Oct 2012 22:59:58 -0000" that is a GMX account if that makes a difference. Now what "qmail invoked by alias" stand for?

The "qmail invoked by alias"

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to qmail invoked by alias

probably refers to the actual mail handling software running on GMail, invoked by
alias of your Gmail account rather than a direct qmail account. Note this is just
a best guess, as I do not know the specifics of how GMail routes their messaging.

So what you are seeing is that the Mail was transfered by Q Mail to the account you sent it to from the Account you sent it from and the rest as stated above is most likely referring to the sending account.
