Finishing your query with "Please send your reply to... " makes it quite unlikely you will get an answer. If you can't be bothered to take even the few seconds required to set up a correct Reply-To header in your mail agent, we can't be bothered to take even a few seconds to think about your problem.
wow, a mind reader!

Don't flag your question as "Urgent", even if it is for you. That's your problem, not ours.
well, that's onto my signature...

I've referred people to this link several times in the past. I think it should be compulsory reading before using this forum.
