showing a different email address

  palinka 13:57 26 May 2008

I have an email address that doesn’t reveal my name, and a domain name which does use my name. I give the domain name to all my friends as my email address. From there mail is forwarded to my “real” email address (the anonymous one)
From time to time I want to use my real, anonymous address.
In OE I have to go to tools>accounts >mail>properties and re-set the entry in Name, Email address and Reply Address; it’s a bit long-winded for the occasional email.
Is there a simpler way to flick from one setting to the other?

Set Up a duplicate account using the desired settings. Go back into the account properties and rename it anonymous and not to include in the send/receive - you would then send manually when using this account.

sounds like a good solution; thanks Taff™
