You dont need ti use an Reply-To: Header if the From: Header is correct.
Please dont do it. You can add an Reply-To: Header in you MUA (like elm or
pine). Elm uses the file elmheaders. If you want to 'correct' the From:
line, you can define it i smail's configfile. Ususally it is defined as:

1root@lina:~# smail -bP from_field
From: $sender${if def:sender_name: ($sender_name)}

this means:

from_field="vielo@wolfenet.com (Your Name)"

will do very fine (it is probably better if u include a file-lookup, see
smail(5) and smail(8).
