I have an email address given to me by my college and their system doesn't

have pop or imap capability, so I have it set up to forward all mail to my

gmail address. I download my email from gmail with pop3 to Outlook 2003.

The problem is that when I want to reply to emails sent to my @school address

I have to go the college's web mail system, or else if I reply from Outlook

it makes the "from" address my gmail address. Is there a way to use a script

to change the "from" address on replies to my school address, or if not, is

there a script that could make Outlook slap my hand if I forget that I

shouldn't reply to @school emails from Outlook? There aren't that many

@school emails that I need to reply to so sometimes I reply without thinking

first.

For Outlook 2003 you would have to use a different API such as

Redemption(www.dimastr.com/redemption) or Extended MAPI (C++ or Delphi only)

to get and change the sending account before the item is sent.

Using Redemption you can set the Account property of an RDOMail object to

any configured RDOAccount in that Outlook profile.

Outlook 2007 adds a SendUsingAccount property that's exactly what you want.

Re: Script to either modify "from" address or prevent a reply bein

Thanks Ken. I looked at them and I think both look like they'd be over my

head to implement. Maybe I'll have to learn to live with the problem.
