           Summary: support for Mail-Followup-To and Mail-Reply-To headers
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.9
          Platform: Debian testing
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: Martin Lichtvoll de

Version:           1.9.9 (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

On a discussion about using a Reply-To to the poster on a list I came to the conclusion that one use of this would be to get a Cc. But then it appears to be better to use a Mail-Followup-To header[1].

However I did not find a way to try this out with KMail cause KMail doesn't appear to allow me to actually set that header - or any custom header at all.

There are several related bug reports:
- Improve Reply-To Mailinglist (bug #71307), especially the comment from Ingo Klöcker https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71307#c7

And loosely related:
- Custom headers per message: bug #59478 
- Custom headers per identity: bug #25315 
- Costum headers per template: bug #148407 
- Use custom headers from command line (bug #89882)

But I think Mail-Followup-To and Mail-Reply-To should get special support. KMail should allow me to set those headers easily. And it should respect Mail-Followup-To when replying to mailinglist and Mail-Reply-To when replying to regularily (reply to poster).
