We are looking at a web fax servcie and would like to have some of our

automated emails use a common email address when sending a fax so that all go

into a common user inbox. Is that possible? Thanks.

Yes, it's possible, but the details depend on the Outlook version and

whether the common inbox is in an Exchange mailbox. You should always

include information like that when posting on an Outlook forum.

Sorry, we are using Exchange and Outlook 2003. It would be nice to have a

solution for either environment. We are web developers and some of our

customers are using Outlook and communicating directly to the mail provider

and others funnelling everything through Exchange. HTH.

For Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003, take a look at the

MailItem.SentOnBehalfOfName property.

Thank you. I take it that will not work if the users are not on Exchange?

Or is that not a problem since I am just filling in the FROM email address in

that scenario?

Correct. If the user is not on Exchange, there is no direct way to change

the sender for an outgoing message. These are known (and sometimes partial)

workarounds using native Outlook functionality:

1) If the user has Outlook 2002/3 and is not using WordMail as the editor,

you set the sending account using CommandBars techniques. See

http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=889 for sample code.

2) You can set the SentOnBehalfOfName property, but the recipient will

probably see the user's default sending address as well, which may not be

desireable.

3) If you're mainly concerned about replies to your message going to the

correct place, add the desired reply address to the MailItem.ReplyRecipients

collection.

The third-party Redemption ( http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/ ) library

adds two other solutions:

4) Set an RFC822 header property, as described at

http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/faq.htm#14

5) Set the RDOMail.Account property, as described at

http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/rdo/RDOMail.htm
