where do you specify the reply address?

maybe you need:

// Additional headers
$headers .= 'From: person@example.com\r\n";

mankowitz is very close, IMHO.  You have

 $headers .= 'From: Reply from ' . "\r\n";

That's where you need mankowitz's person@example.com  (except it should be a real e-mail address or at least no-reply@example.com).

I don't know if single quotes will escape correctly. Try these and see if any work

$headers .= "From: person@example.com\r\n";

$headers .= "From: person@example.com\r";

$headers .= "From: person@example.com\n";

Good point by mankowitz about the quotes.  I almost always use double quotes unless I have a good reason to use single quotes.  It is important to remember that the different quotes work differently in PHP (as mankowitz pointed out).
