Maybe just a stupid idea . . .

If it is just a header thing, as it's been suggested, I would try procmail.

Your command would be something like

echo "Foo" | mail -s "subject:real_recipient" highpriority at unc.edu

The procmail script for the highpriority account would add in the 
necessary header, pull real_recipient out of subject & forward it to 
real_recipient at unc.edu.
