I have a web-only-based email address I use, and want to write FROM it within Outlook 2007.
I cannot smpt though it, my web-based email provider does not provide that.
In Outlook, I can configure an account that has my web-based email address as the REPLY-TO address, HOWEVER Outlook still sends the email FROM whichever SMTP server I send it through.
So effectively I cannot send an email from within Outlook 2007 that really appears to be sent from my web-based email address.
But I want to.
I can manually invoke/display the "FROM" field, and enter my web-based email address there, however Outlook appears to ignore that and still list the smtp account email address as the FROM address once the email is sent
I have searched on the web for this, and have found nothing.
I am running XP and Outlook freestanding i.e. without Exchange.
Thanks ppumpkin - it's not so much that I want to spoof anything...
I used to be a Eudora Pro user, and Eudora happily sent emails via any legit smtp server (with my appropriate login credentials) WHILE listing the From address as anything I chose. In other words, it did not differentiate between the Reply-To and the From address.
However, Outlook does. While Outlook happily accepts any Reply-To email address I put into the account settings, it appears to stubbornly insist on the From address being whatever smtp server I sent it through.
Does this make enough sense and/or change your kind answer?
