'From:' of course
Are additional headers like 'Reply-To:', etc. necessary or useful for general email purposes?

Headers, like Reply-to, Bcc, Cc, From,
X-Mailer, Priority, etc..
There are quite a few, and it just depends on what you are doing..
In short, the answer is: It's up to you.
Personally, I tend to use:
And sometimes use X-Priority, depending on what I'm sending.. I use that one particulary in an "auto-invoicer".. where my monthly service invoices are emailed by PHP..
P.S. -- I've only had problems with Bcc and Cc, when sending via "sendmail" with the -t option...
I've been told that under PHP, sendmail strips those headers when -t is used.
This was never a case when sending mail with Perl, using sendmail -t.. so, I'm not sure if that statement was true..
