    Specifying sender in code-created emails (Outlook98/WinNT4)

    As you probably know, when you create an email in Outlook, there is an option (from the new email) to click on View, Options and specify 'Have replies sent to ...'.

    One of my users is sending a bulk email mailshot using an XL spreadsheet I developed (with help) that, given the name and email address for each recipient, sends an individual email to each. This uses a URL to create the emails - effectively 'mailto:'.

    However, he now wants to be able to send the emails with his boss's name in the From field, whilst having all replies sent to himself - presumably the net effect of the 'Have replies sent to ...' option mentioned above.

    Does anyone know if there is a URL code for this option, or whether it is possible to set the Replies Sent To option permanently, rather than having to change it on each email? I know you can set it on a template (I did so on one of mine recently and then had to get help here to find it again!!) but again, I don't think you can specify a template when creating an email via a URL code ...

    I'm attaching a copy of the spreadsheet - any help would be much appreciated!

    Re: Specifying sender in code-created emails (Outlook98/WinNT4)

    What mail server? If it's POP mail, the usual solution is to create a second profile and log in using that profile. If it's Exchange, you might not be able to do this, but you can use the "on behalf of" method. Wish I could suggest a search for past threads on this... for now, see: Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 181142 - OL98: (CW) How to Create a New E-mail Profile for Outlook.

    (P.S. Why is this on the Word board?)

    Hi Jefferson, it's Exchange, I'm afraid, and the 'on behalf of' option is apparently not good enough!
    Re being on the Word board - sorry, I must have forgotten to change boards before I created it! <img src=/S/woops.gif border=0 alt=woops width=58 height=36> Grovelling apologies! It must be too early in the morning for me ...
