I don't really understand what you mean. RFC822 says that
Note: The "Return-Path" field is added by the mail transport
service, at the time of final deliver. It is intended
to identify a path back to the orginator of the mes-
sage. The "Reply-To" field is added by the message
originator and is intended to direct replies.
so you can't mean that I should set
"From: Joe User <firstname.lastname@example.org>\nReturn-Path: <email@example.com")
because that isn't added at the final deliver of the mail, but at it's start.
Or do you mean this?
