If your mail goes though procmail at some point, you could rewrite the
headers with a procmail rule and formail. That would let you mudge the
reply-to without anyone knowing, and flaming about it.

How, pray, do I ascertain whether my mail goes through the
procmail filter? I am very acquainted with *NIX like systems,
having used them since 1985 or so, but only as a developer,
not as an administrator. So I'm weak on that score.

I have Thunderbird set to use POP to pull and SMTP to push
e-mail. So I guess that procmail is not involved. I read the
man page for procmail, but it seems to presume that the mail
is getting pulled via normal *NIX means, which I suppose that
this is not.

If you haven't set up procmail, then your mail doesn't go though a
procmail filter. Sorry for wasting your time. Pete
