how can I (can I ?)program my OE to show a senders address of my choice that bears no relation to my real one?
I already have it programed to return replies to my default mail address


why do this;for privacy and personal reasons;
how can I get the mails as to show a sent from address that bears no relation to me whatsoever

I have had a look but cannot see any way of doing this, and have some guinee- pig addresses to send test messages to to ensure I get it right if I can program my OE to do this:)

It is possible to conceal the senders ID,but not very nice for those on the receiving end of abusive/indecent,etc emails.(not that I'm implying you do this)There are a number of email servers that can forward on your email,thus hiding the senders details.

What appears in the from field is found at

Tools > Accounts > %your Email account% > Properties > General Tab > Name

Your IP address is contained within the e mail header so you are not really anonymous.

I might try the 1313 suggestion on my guinea-pigs and see what reactions I get::))

probably a farm-yard revolt:(
