Instead of using the mail dialog create a field on your form called SendTo.

Option1:

Put the following formula in the SendTo field, listing all the names to send to:

"Joe Blow":"Mike Smith":"Larry Jones"

Option2:

Have the SendTo reference another field:

Use the following formula:

ManagersField : EmployeeFIELD : OtherFIELD

Option3:

You can add logic to the formula (ie: this example references a field called 'Router')

@If(Router = "1";ToWhom;Router = "2";@DbLookup("" : "NoCache"; "notes1":"HR\\People.nsf"; "Maintenance"; "PeopleView"; "Associate" ) ;Router = "3";@DbLookup("" : "NoCache"; "notes1":"HR\\JobBids.nsf"; "Maintenance"; "PeopleView2"; "Associate" );"")

Hope this helps.

IN my experience, when sing sned dialog, the From field will be auto created by send ing dialog, and can overwrite existing field. .

Hi edwardy,

You can use may be the ReplyTo Field to make the user to reply to a different mail id.

If u want to make the sender a different person then u have to create a doc in the mail.box.  For more details about how to do that follow this link....

Hi edwardy,

If you are using script to send mail , you can change From name. U can set the From field like this.

maildoc.From = "name"

I don't think you can change the from field with your current method.

Good luck,

Antony.

You can't change the FROM field. That field is filled up by the router, not by you at the client side.

One thing you can do, is fill in the PRINCIPAL field. That way the receiver sees the name you filled in the PRINCIPL field in the view.

One detail. On the memo self, you get an extra line:
"Send by 'Username'" - Again this is filled in by the router.

Good luck

PS.: You ca change the FROM field  like you hell, the router is goig to change it always back to the username. In script or formula, always the username.

You can not change the FROM field.  If you could then I could write a memo to my boss saying he sucks... but send it from my co-worker so they get in trouble, not me.  Sounds fun but that would not be a good thing.
