    The Reply-To is a message header, not a SMTP command.

    Lines with a leading # are not part of the conversation but my comments
    The SMTP conversation would be structured like this:

    # Server prompt.
    220 No UCE No UBE.
    # Client greeting
    # Server acknowledgement and capabilities
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250 8BITMIME
    # Client sends envelope sender
    MAIL from:<>
    # Server acknowledgement
    250 Ok
    # Client sends envelope recipient
    RCPT to:<>
    # Server acknowledgement
    250 Ok
    # Client sends notice that it will be sending the message content.
    # Server says continue
    354 End with CRLF.CRLF to finish
    # Client sends headers
    From:  Foo<>
    To: Bar<>

    Reply-To: <>
    # Custom header
    X-submission: Submitted by
    Subject: This is my message

    This is the body of the message.
    # Client ends message with . by itself.
    # Server accepts
    250 Ok queued as 12345ABCDEF
    221 connection closed
