Dear all:

I am using JavaMail1.2 package and want to specify a different return address for bounced (undeliverable) messages than the address of the
sender (which appearing as the value of the From: field, to which the normal reply of the message will return if Reply-To header is not set).

Message.setFrom(String) will set the value for From: field, but how can I set the value for the
envelope from, so that if when the mail is undeliverable, it will return to this Envelope From, rather than the one in the From: field?

Many Thanks,

I found the answer to this in Sun's Java forums at http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=43&thread=74083

In short, the SMTP envelope isn't directly exposed in the API, but you can set a property on your javax.mail.Session object, "mail.smtp.from"  The value of that property will be used as the STMP Envelope From address.  Of course, that value sticks with the session, so use caution if you're sharing your session among several processes.
