<mail> should have "reply-to" attribute

           Summary: <mail> should have "reply-to" attribute
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: karsten.silz@epost.de


I use the <mail> task in Ant 1.5.3. to send emails.  The sender is a
non-existing, symbolic mail account like "ant@blah.com".  Now if a mail doesn't
get delivered it bounces back to the (non-existing) sender which is bad.

For exactly this case, emails have a "reply-to" attribute to which replies and
bouncing emails go to.  I've used it in plain Javamail in the past.  With
"reply-to", I could keep the symbolic sender and have the replies directed to my
email address.

I suggest that a future version of Ant supports the "reply-to" attribute for the
<mail> task.
