Err, no, if you're running *any* properly configured mail system.

Internet standard STD 11 (RFC 822) says...

     4.3.1.  RETURN-PATH

        This field  is  added  by  the  final  transport  system  that
        delivers  the message to its recipient.  The field is intended
        to contain definitive information about the address and  route
        back to the message's originator.
