Even though the alterations (currently) obliterate whatever the original
poster may have had in the "reply-to" field? This cripples senders that
must use a separate receiving address. Since the "reply-to" field is
supposed to override the "from" field, reply-to -all and -sender-only
functions are also messed up.
