[Pkg-exim4-users] Need to rewrite Reply-To: and possibly Sender

I know that most view this as the wrong thing to do, but I feel I have a
decent reason why.

I have a debian sarge box running exim4 configured with
localhost.localdomain and routing through remote smtp smarthost.  Email
from it sends just fine via the phpmail module that the web site uses.

The problem is that some external smtp servers are choking on Reply-To:

www-data at localhost.localdomain.  This is an obviously unroutable

The From field is being populated correctly and the phpmail app does
specify the Reply-To, but it's getting rewritten by exim to the www-data


I threw this into my update-exim4.conf.conf:

dc_headers_rewrite='$h_from: = $h_reply-to:'

Now I get in the header: Return-Path: <www-data at mydomain.com> This gets
me half way there.  Now I just need to be able replace the www-data with
the value to the left of the @ in the From field.

Any ideas?  I am a complete newbie to Exim and am suprised I got this
