It is possible that the header is being included in the message correctly,
but is simply ignored by the recipient server that issues the error.
"Errors-to" is not a standard header field dictated by the standard RFCs.
It is an custom extension of the "sendmail" program specifically, and even
then the latest versions have it disabled by default.  If the server is not
using "sendmail" (and most don't), your header value would have no effect at
