    Editing email header (Outlook Express 6)

    How can I change to a fake name or not show my name in the FROM: portion of the header in O E?

    I would hope with great difficulty if you are intending to send spam!

    You may not find it possible to do if your ISP checks that the mail they are handling is from a valid address. Why do you want to change it?

    Microsoft doesn't want its e-mail programs to be used for sending spam, so they don't allow you to change the From address of an e-mail.
