  1. Install HW Override Default E-mail either via the plugin directory, or by uploading the files to your server.

Will it override all e-mails?

No. It will only intervene if it detects that the e-mail about to be sent has the WordPress default sender information. It means that existing plugins, filters or in other way specified e-mail sender information will be untouched and still work as expected.

What about Reply-Path?

It will always override the Reply-Path header if not prohibited by your server configuration. It will do so by setting the Reply-Path e-mail address to the same address as the From value.
