Reply bug
When a user tries replying to the following mail they get an invalid email error, because GMail puts "DM65@webtv.net (GRANDMA & GRANDPA BEAR)" in the reply field, when there should only be DM65@webtv.net

Outlook Express gets this right, it sends mail back to the Return-Path in the headers, but GM seems to send it to the From header instead, which causes the error, and has an irate user complaining why they can't send mail with their new email account.

Can this be fixed?

Return-Path: <DM65@webtv.net>

This will be fixed in 2.0.2. It's not Return-Path, but rather parsing of the email address that needs fixing.
