 The wp_mail() function has worked pretty well so far, but is pretty
 limited in how much you can modify how an email is sent.  Since emails are
 such a major part of BuddyPress, I suggest creating a new BP email
 function to replace or possibly more gracefully implement the standard
 wp_mail function.

 Here's some functions that would be nice to be made available in this new
 BP Email Function (along with the existing wp_mail functionality):
 -Set Reply-to header
 -HTML email support
 -CC and BCC options
 -From Email and Name option (could use code from
 http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mail-from/ to implement)

 I'm sure there are others that people can add in the comments.  As I
 researched for this ticket, I found that wp_mail could probably do many of
 these functions using $headers and some WP filters.  However, BP making it
 dead simple for plugin developers to implement would be a great addition.
 Plus, it could be used by BP emails too.
