B4J Question SMTP Reply-to email

I am sending a email using SMTP but trying to work out how to add a reply-to (or make it show it sent from someone else)

Currently it's sending fine by using:

SMTP.Initialize(smtpServer, smtpPort, "my@email.com", "xxxxxx", "smtp")
        SMTP.UseSSL = True
        SMTP.Sender = "myname<test@email.com>"
However, it shows my@email.com as the email address it was sent from. (of cause this is not my real email, using the above values as examples while posting it on the forum)

I was hoping it would send the email as myname<test@email.com>

I am using Gmail as the email server.

I am guessing the from email can't be changed when using the Gmail server, and it needs to be sent from the same email address the user signed into the gmail server with?

Is there a way in adding a reply-to email address so if the user clicks reply it will send it to a different email than what it was sent from ?

Adding the additional header for reply-to seem to work.

After looking into more detail, it seems that Google (Gmail) doesn't allow the sender email to be different than what has been used to login to the server with. But Reply-to seems to be allowed.

Dim map1 As Map
    SMTP.AdditionalHeaders = map1
