Hi,
Our company has many different domains that it wishes to be able to send email from, i.e. a user will want to be able to login and then select which from address they wish to send from. However from what I can see currently this is restricted to the domain.

I.e. if the user logs in with username1 it will only show the from addresses that are assigned to that domain. it only allowing <_at_>domain.com

and I need to be able to say username1 has these email addresses:

username1<_at_>domain.com
username1<_at_>mydomain.net
thisisme<_at_>someone.co.uk

Anyone know how this is possible?

Thanks

Rob

There isn't any way to do this at the moment. You'd have to create multiple domains and do several logins.

However it's a suggestion we have, perhaps one day we will implement it.

Why can't we just use any from address we'd like? (I mean: I know it can't be done currently, but why couldn't it be implemented?)

The from field is just another header. Basicly, you could fill in anything you'd like. If the interface would let you, that is.

Currently you can only change the from address to the accounts specified as your email addresses. And you can't change the 'nice name'.

Currently (in Webmail) the from field is a drop down box (if you have more email addresses). Why not add a 'custom' option that lets the user type in anything they'd like? For example "Bill Gates <billgates<_at_>microsoft.com>" :-)

You can in Outlook (now that it's fixed again). But, it doesn't just show the FROM address. When you open the message, it displays:

From: Actual Sender [actualSender<_at_>domain.com]; on behalf of; ChangedFromUser (changedFromUser<_at_>domain.com)

That's a security step imposed by Outlook (I think it's Outlook). If it weren't for that, you could forge any from address you wanted and people on the receiving end wouldn't know the difference. Specifying ANY from address without some sort of control could be abused badly.
