Return address on forum mail (General)

When users enter a posting and mail notification is activated, the mail sent contains the forum administrative return address, and not the address of the person who wrote the posting. Both make sense in different ways, is there any way to influence the selection?

There's no other way than reverse engineering the script and programming. But does it really make sense to reveal the answering user's mail address? You'll have to give him a choice and You'll have to store that in the database usertable or to ask him with each posting.

A lot of work which can be circumvent as each user may decide to be reachable via the small envelope icon or by pm.
