setting the from (identity) in OE 6

I want to send an email but change the from field to another email address I have from a hosted web site. I looked at setting up another identity, but this would only let me receive mail, sending said redirects not allowed.

In Outlook Express go to Tools-Accounts.  Do you see both accounts that you have set up?

Have you set up a second mailbox?  I have three mailboxes in my system - my normal plus two hotmail accounts.  When I create an email I have an option in the FROM box to select which of the three to use in sending.  This is in OE6, by the way.

BTW, you get the From box by starting to compose a message and then choosing from the menu VIEW and then FROM FIELD.

slink9, I created a second identity, if that's what you mean by a mailbox. But the 'from box' never appears. I am using Outlook Express 6.

When I compose a new message, there is no 'from' option under the view menu.

I just looked at mine.  I have a FROM line, but no option to turn it on or off.  I am on my way to church.  I will check on it after.

I can't figure out how it was displayed.  I have the FROM field and the BCC displayed.  I have right-clicked and gone through View and even looked on the web.  The only thing I can figure is that they just showed up because that is the way I had it when I had OE5.5!!

If I go View->All Header then I get BCC, but not From, unfortunately

I got it working. Once I added a second account (not an identity) then the from box appeared. Thanks.
