Apache Set Response Header if nonexistent

Hi everybody,

how can I set a certain header in my response ONLY IF it doesn't exist?

More precisely, I want to set "Content-Encoding: identity" only in case that it doesn't exist already. If it does, it should keep its original value (e.g. "Content-Encoding: gzip")

Thanks in advance
Dani

Maybe:
if (strstr($_SERVER["HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING"],"identity")===0) {
    // set to et identity
} else {
    //keep its original value
}

Sorry, I'm searching more kind of a apache configuration for a vhost. I got to admit I could have chosen a better category :-/

Have you looked at http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/en/mod/mod_headers.html Should be something like:

Header merge Content-Encoding identity
