I'm not sure who you're replying to here. If it was I then the answer
to your question "why?" is because that is the answer to the question
that Ed asked. If he had asked how to change the "From" header I
would've answered that. You add the "From:" line in exactly the same
manner though, if that's what's desired.
Ed sent me email with the following:
|Thanx for the reply and suggestion but it didn't work.

Sorry 'bout that Ed. You said you were using RMail, but I missed
that. RMail is different, add the following to your ~/.emacs, instead
of what I told you before:
(setq mail-default-headers "Reply-To: email@example.com\nFrom: firstname.lastname@example.org\n")
Just to mollify Steve, I included how to insert a "From:" line
too. Note that the above is redundant since they are the same, but
Reply-To can be set to something separate if you so desire.
