This parameter is not a valid one. You cant use it. Youmust configure the account to do this.

It shows how to set up database email. This is what is neccesary to use it. And to configure it you have to specify an realexisting Email account to send. There you can define the reply to address. Only there, not when sending the mail out usingthis account.
The used email providers there are just samples. If you do not have access to the Database email configuration you should talk to your administrator person to do it.

You can write your own Send_EMAIL Procedure and include a reply_to parameter. Inside of the procedure you must check (SELECT CASE) what value was passed and depending on this value select another SQL DataBase PROFILE from you configuration. Inside of the different configurations (Profiles) select different Accounts (including REPLY TO addresses).
