ReplyTo is the address that the recipients should send response emails to.
TIdSMTP::Send() does not copy the message to the ReplyTo address.  That is
not the purpose of ReplyTo.

Is that what you are referring to?

> Here is the recieved Mail Header

The header is exactly as it should be.  The TIdMessage::ReplyTo property set
the "Reply-To" header value.  That is what it does.  If the receiving email
client does not respect the "Reply-To" header value, then that is the
client's fault.
