Default adding an extra header to an email

Please Login to Remove!

i have added an menuitem on the compose e-mail screen and would like to add an extra header.
i can add recipients or modify the subject but addheader seems not to be working.

Code:
public Object run(Object context) {
try{                	
Message message = (Message) context;          
Message message = (Message) context;                
message.addHeader("REPLY_TO","user@domain.com");
message.addHeader("X-VOODOO", "voodoo on");
...
i call getAllHeaders() to check if the new header is set but the resulting enumeration is empty.

Any idea?

it seems that the API allows only certain headers to be set, don't ask me why. If i add a 'TO:' header my code works well.
Seems that i'll have to find a new idea to mark certain messages, maybe add some text into the body.

oh yeah, I should've looked: These are the guys you want
RIM Device Java Library: Interface Message.RecipientType

Address[] addresses = new Address[1];
addresses[0] = to;
message.addRecipients(Message.RecipientType.TO, addresses);

where to is some Address
etc.

I haven't found it documented anywhere, but from what I've been able to do it looks like headers other that the small set supported by the device are silently ignored during transmission.

I would love for some one to prove me wrong though.
