"fogbugz@example.com" reply address

Hello,
    We are trying to expand our scoutSubmit to send an e-mail to our FogBugz administrators when there is a bug report submitted through Scout that fails because the project name or area name is not found.  I added code to the fail function to compose the e-mail and used the SendAdminMail function to send the e-mail.  Everything seems to work fine, but I am not sure if I am using the correct call to get the "from" address to be the "fogbugz@example.com" address like e-mails that are generated by the current system code.  I am using g_config.sReplyEmail since that appears like what other places that send out notifications use (like the EMailNotification function in CBug.asp).  However sometimes the e-mail address on the administrative mails in the address of the account I am currently logged into instead of the fogbugz address.  Is there any suggestions you might have on this?

Something sounds fishy... like outside of FogBugz.  The g_config.sReplyEmail is always the fogbugz@example.com email, so unless your SMTP server is doing some From: header rewriting then I can't explain what you are seeing.
