      In jira-application.properties I see the availability to customize the email header format. This is what I have:

      1. Specifies the From: header format in notification emails. Default is of the form "John Doe (JIRA) <jira@company.com>".
      2. Available variables are ${fullname}, ${email} and ${email.hostname}
      3. If commented out, format is just 'jira@company.com'
      4. default: jira.email.fromheader.format = ${fullname} (JIRA)
        jira.email.fromheader.format = ${email} (${fullname}) via JIRA

      The problem is that the actual address (if the user clicks to "Reply") is not that, but the one specified for the project, so users will just click Reply not realizing that the reply to address is not what is shown. What's more, I do not see any of the variables available to show the sender's address (e.g. project1@company.com). Is there a way to get the reply-to address to be the actual user's address (it SHOWS in the email as the sender). Do you understand my question?
