[CLOSED] FROM email value different than Reply Address and ReportCaster

For a particular project I would like when the recipient receives the email from Report Caster it shows the FROM address from Report Caster Distribution FROM value that I've set in the schedule. The Reply Address needs to be different. Is this possible?

From what I see when testing the email always looks like it's coming from the Reply Address in my report caster schedule even though I have a different address in the From of the Report Caster schedule.

When I put different values for the FROM vs. the Reply the Reply address is always the address the incoming email shows as the FROM. I want the FROM to be different on the incoming email.

Reportcaster is lacking the Reply-To header in the email.

Note that the reply to can lead to some issues, like mail getting in Spam, false contactdata when recievers save contacts. I would try to keep from and reply to the same.
