Force assign issues from email to reporter

I have set up a couple of email aliases linked to a mail handler in JIRA. Each of the aliases is assigned a default reporter. That works fine if the sender email address is unknown. However if the sender email is registered to a known user then that user is set as the reporter.

I would like to disable that behaviour for these mail handlers. Ie. always assign to the default reporter. Is that possible?

JEMH can do that. There is a Profile > Security > Default reporter overides derived checkbox.
