Different internet-mail-addresses

i've got notes mail client r5 and want to send emails with different addresses without changing the workspace.
It would be best, if i could change the "from" field (with a dropdown?) if i write a new memo.

is their any chance to do that?

Unless you change the design of the mail file on your local hard drive and disable updating from the server, the drop-down will not last more than 24 hours, as the design task runs normally at 1AM on the server.

The easiest way, in r5 is to mess with the profiles.  Down in the lower right hand side of the status bar you'll see Home, Internet, Office and so on...  Click on Edit current.  In the Basics tab, lefthand column you'll see the field for Internet mail address.  If you change this here, it will change your outgoing internet address.  

I too administer several domain names, and this is how I do it.  Let me know if you have further questions.

mas11,

You can have the memo "reply to" a different name than the original sender but changing the "From" field to a name other than who you really are is considered spoofing and not appropriate.  A better (and more ethical) way is to use your Location Docs and have the Doc switch IDs for you.  This is the same amount of effort as clicking on a field and switching User Names.

Why not Scenario:
Joe User decides he does not like Fellow Employee so Joe sends an e-mail to Head Fred and say !@#$*& and many other explicitives then says this is "From" Fellow Employee.  Not a good design "feature" to have unless you are up to no good.

i'm using a standalone system and need to send from different internet email addresse cause i'm admin of different domains, so its not a "feature" some else could use. its just for me and if this doesnt work, i will have to change to another email client. this would be very sad cause i like LN.

changing ids doesnt work for me cause i cannot create new ids.

mas11,

Notes R5 can do multiple email accounts.  Using Location Docs and Account Docs this can be attained.  Explain to me exactly what you want to happen and I'll be able to give you a more descriptive answer.

i want two things:
1. if i write a new memo, i'd like to have a selection box, which lets me choose the email-address for the from entry. like this:
1.opt: email@server.com (Martin Schwoerer)
2.opt: email2@server2.com (Martin Schwoerer)
and so on.

2. if i recieve a mail and answer it, the from field should be filled with the address the original mail was pointed to (not absolute necessary)

i dont use notesmail, just internet mail

i hope your able to understand my poor english

thanks ms

p.s. if you need more points, tell me

mas11,

You should be able to modify the "principal" field (in R5) to have displayed any address you wish.

I would suggest modifying your mail file to include the princiapal field as a selection field (radio or pulldown) and check the form for any automatic validation of that field and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps.
