I've just figured that out myself. From within GMail, go to settings, and
add an additional email account. Once that's done (you'll need to verify the
account after configuring it), you can edit the default account to "specify
a different reply-to address". There, you would enter the additional email
address you've added.

I can't see a way to set the reply-to field 'on-the-fly', though.
