Some web based email provides do strange things when you add a reply-to address in the name of security.
I dont see the point in setting a "reply to" address, as it's gunna come back into your mailbox anyway. The only reason you'd do it is to hide your private address, but you can't do that anyway, so I dont see the issue.
The main idea behind a re-direct being that you give your "anonymous" tangomike email out over the air (Keeping it away from Busby and his friends), and you only show your real address to those whom you wish to reply to, IE verivied contacts.
Simon - Looking forward to getting a mini-site created. I have been giving the tangomike.net address out over the air for years, as it has the QSL information on the bottom. Another good way to easily to QSL info out there is to have it on your forum signature (as mine is below). Some sections of the forum are public and the web crawlers index them accordingly, meaning I can tell the station to simply do a quick google of either my callsign, or even MrWeetabix to bring up my QSL info quickly and easily.
Nice to have a mini-site for some pics and a biography though
