    Temporary change to From email address (any)

    I ought to know the answer to this, but is there any trivial way of changing the email address from which a message is sent, just for one message?

    Suppose I have an email address which I use ONLY for lists and internet purchases, say, of lists@mightywizard.co.uk, and my usual email address which I would normally use for messages is johannes@mightywizard.co.uk.

    To reply to a message from a provider of goods, I want to send the message as if I was lists rather than johannes.

    Am I making sense?

    thanks

    Hmmm

    If I understood it right, it involves the setting up of another OE identity (which seems like overkill, and which I don't want)...

    John,
    I'm not sure if this is what you want to do but can you copy the message on the johannes message to the clipboard.
    Then go to the "lists" address and create a new message and paste the message from johannes in the new message?
    Wouldn't that make it appear to come from lists@mightywizard.co.uk?

    Don't know if I'M making sense here.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Quite possibly! I will read all 50 of his points when I feel strong...

    You may also create another e-mail account (takes only a minute) with the same server details but instead with the name as shown above and leave it unchecked for inclusion in checking and just use it for sending out as you do occassionally by selecting it from the drop down "From" field when composing (it will appear after you have two or more mail accounts).

    You will not need to set up another Identity, John.

    You can go into the mail account properties, then on the general tab, simply change the three fields as I have indicated below. Send yourself a test e-mail - you will see that the display name or the e-mail addy will be the same for whatever e-mail or web client is being used on the receiving end.
