There is a known problem with Microsoft E-mail clients.
Client shows the Sender and not From address, this is not a standart behavior, but hey, microsoft don't give a f... about standarts, they make standarts of their own.

Just try to use Kmail or another normal mail client and you'll see that the problem gone.

In admin panel (via web) force "reply-to" header overwrite and set what you want
