Ah! I've double checked and you're quite right: the config/zendto.conf

EmailSenderAddress = 'DropOff Service <do-not-reply at york.ac.uk>'

does indeed set the "From:" address and leaves the "Reply-to:" address
pointing at the email address of the person who sent the dropoff.

I guess the confusion I felt comes from my configuring the service to send
from <do-not-reply at york.ac.uk> which gets clearly displayed in the "From:"
header, and then not thinking that the (normally not shown) "Reply-to:"
header would be present. I may have to set up a different email address
just for the Dropoff Service to send from to avoid this confusion in others

In passing…

There's also another oddity in when you forget to select a file to upload…

   - If you've not entered a recipient you get a nice little pop-up window
   telling you to select a recipient.
   - If you have entered a recipient but just forgotten to select which
   file you want to upload but instead click the "Drop Off Files" button you
   get an error page that includes something which looks like it shouldn't be
   there; see the bit I've marked with a red background in the section
   copy'n'pasted from the page:

[image: [error]]Upload ErrorYou must choose at least one file to drop-off.
Use the back button in your browser to go back and fix this omission before
trying again.
  Drop-Off SummaryNo files in the dropoff... something is amiss!
