"From:" address other than Return-Path. Can my message be considered spam because of it?


New Email
I have an institutional email address [my_login]@[institution.com]. However, as I don't like that login very much and as I can create an email alias for that address, I have set the "From:" address in my MS Outlook to [my_alias]@[institution.com]. But the Return-Path in my sent email remains unchanged and is always [my_login]@[institution.com].

Can this cause email sent by me to be considered spam or completely filtered? Thanks.​

It could be a flag for some spam filters.

Why not let the From: match and use the Reply-to: header to tell mail clients where you want replies to go?
