Yup, make it

address_headers: from to cc sender reply-to

BTW, everyone, I expect it's time to make that the default setting for
address_headers.  It *is* the default in the Outlook client (and has been
for a long time).  We looked only at "From" in the early days because some
of the others were killer-strong clues for bogus reasons when people
experimented on mixed-source ham and spam (for example, every one of ham had
a python.org Sender then, and none of my spam did; similarly, huge mounds of
my spam had one of Bruce Guenter's honeypot To addresses but none of my ham
did; so considering stuff like that made the classifier's job too easy).
