there is no config option for this.. sorry.

idea for a workaround: use option edit_headers and
let your editor copy your From: to a Reply_to: header.

but then you *must* use your editor at least once on every email.
then again, this is what you do on replies, anyway, right? ;-)

then again, you simply cannot fix everything
what the others mailers are breaking.  :-/
