changing From: address with multiple accounts
I have multiple POP accounts coming into Outlook XP. I
want to be able to send messages from any of those
accounts by choosing (without having to go in and change
the default account). Under Outlook 2000, this was a
choice, but I cannot find it under Outlook XP. Am I
missing something obvious, or is that a new feature?
Appreciate the help.
When you click on Reply/Forward/New Mail Message etc you should see an
Accounts button on the toolbar to the Right of Send

news:0c0b01c...Change From: and Reply To: headers?
I think that I know the answer to this one. I subscribe to mailing
lists and always use a different email address for each list - all
are in the format of <list name>@bryananderson.co.uk.
This enables me to easily filter lists into folders and also to see
where my email address is being picked up for spam. I do the same
when I sign up for anything online or order anything online.
All these emails come to the same POP3 box, so checking the one box
will download all the emails to all the addresses. So - how can I
edit the from: and reply to: fields on a per-email basis? I really
don'...from: field won't go away
Hi, I have a problem with my outlook - I have two accounts set up, one
is with exchange and the other is with pop3. All of a sudden all of my
emails default with the from: field on and filled in with my exchange
name. This is a problem because any mail I send through my pop3
account is telling people to reply to my exchange account which I do
not want. I can clear out my name there and everything works, but
thats a pita, I want that to be off like it was before.
I checked my other computer and it works fine, so its something local
to my machine. I also tried deleting my email profile and ...Change default value of From: field
Is there a registry hack or something similar that can make my default
'from' address something other than my primary address? I can easily type
the alternate address in for every email but that's a huge pain.
Any help is much appreciated.
What type of email account? If IMAP or POP3, no hack needed - change it on
the Account settings dialog.

We use a exchange 2003 server and I have notice that my outlook 2003
client behaves strange if the From tag in the header looks like this;
From: �� <email@example.com>
I�ve hooked up Thunderbird and it shows the From field as I think it
should, instead of a blank from field it shows firstname.lastname@example.org
If the header looks like this; From: email@example.com
or like this; From: �name� <firstname.lastname@example.org>
it works just fine.
The problem is the first example�

"Joe deAngelo" wr...How to change owner (From:) of a public folder, newsgroup post
How do I change the Owner or From: for a newsgroup post. This is a post in
an Exchange 2003 public folder of type newsgroup. The posts in question are
from a generic user account and I need to change it to the specific user.
I tried by opening the post, choosing Edit menu -> Revise Contents, and
changing the From: to the new person. But it would not save, and if I
reposted it would keep the original user (poster) in the From: field (and of
course it also changed the post to the current date/time). I have tried this
method, to no avail, using the original user, and two different a...I can't see field From:

This seems simple, but I don't see how to setup a rule for the following.

I want to filter messages after being sent, and if the From: field is User2 then move the message to the User2 mail folder.
Check message after sending
through the specified account (but only shows Microsoft Exchange)
Any ideas ?!
