SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

And also that a 'from' is required if one uses reply-to.
I didn't find that to be the case, since a missing 'From:' line is always generated based on the 'MAIL FROM:' envelope, at least with postfix. The address following 'Reply-To:' probably does not show in your MUA as the originator of the mail, but it's still there in the headers. It's only when you try to repond to the message that the address is used.
I've tried it again with different sequences of 'subject' and 'reply-to' and now it works every time. I guess I made some mistakes in my php-code that caused funny behaviour (reply-to in message instead of in field).
If I do not include the 'from', I do not see a 'from' in the received email. It might be that this is caused by the server; I'm connecting directly to an exchange server (not using sendmail) and cannot change its behavior. I can live with this.
