The mail software I use (Pine, running on a Unix machine) offers the option:

 Use "Reply to:" address instead of "From:" address? (y/n/^C) [y]:

each time you hit the key for 'Reply' after reading a message.

If ge.com doesn't have this option, send 'em a note.

maybe your Internet provider 'ge.com' should fix their software :)
