I've migrated from Thunderbird to Outlook 2016, and I'm looking for a specific feature I did have before but which I cannot find in Outlook. I want to send e-mail with a specific sender.
Basically I have two IMAP mail accounts now in Outlook:
On my web host I've configured a few more e-mail aliases like
firstname.lastname@example.org which all just fall through to the
catch-all mail address for incoming mail (they are allowed as a sender). In Outlook I see them in the Inbox for that account, which is great. When replying, I want the "From" field to be the other accounts.
You can show the "From" address in the Compose window, then click "Send From Other Email Address", and fill it out like this:
But then I receive e-mail with a sender like this:
John Doe <email@example.com> on behalf of firstname.lastname@example.org
Which is not what I want. If I check the full headers I can see that only the
From fields are set to
email@example.com. I want it to be just
John Doe <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Since I have about 10 of these mail aliases, I'd hate to go through setting up separate e-mail accounts in Outlook for all of them (not in the least because I don't want them to appear as inboxes in the left-hand pane of Outlook).
In Thunderbird I could just create new Identities and use an existing outgoing SMTP configuration from my catch-all account. Is there something similar in Outlook?
