    Why do some replies include sender as From:?

    Here's a problem that has driven me crazy since I started using Outlook a few years ago: Every once in a while, when I hit "reply" to a message, Outlook displays the "From:" field (not normally visible when composing), and fills it in with the sender of the original message. If you don't notice, and try to send, it, of course, tells you that you don't have permission to send as that person. You have to change the From: to yourself, then send it. I see this perhaps once every couple of months. I have talked to many of the senders of these messages, and they say they have done nothing different than what they do when they send regular messages to me that don't behave this way. Anybody ever see this and track it down?

    i've never seen that - but could they have sent bcc's with their name in the to field? hitting reply fakes outlook into putting the to address in to the from field.

    Thank you! I didn't think about Bcc's. That's a good avenue of investigation.

    if it's not a bcc issue, that a look at this

    it involves registry editing.
