Sendby field of a mail document changes depending on which user is logged in...

Hi there,

I'm encountering this problem, there i'm dealing with an SMS form that's mailing all the information to an external company.

All those mails are safed in the "sent mail" folder...

If an "not that clean" sms is send, it should be possible to c who send the sms.
How is it possible that the from field from those mails, change to whoever is logged in at the moment checking the sent box...

the replyto field is designed it sms sent script, but should other fields be defined too?

What is the principal field for?

lot's of questions, but already a big thanks...

Notes generally populates the Principal field with the value that's stored in the MailFileOwner field in the Calendar profile document. If that is not the same person as the current user ID, Notes will add a Sent By: and then the name of the current user ID. The From field is usually formed by taking the current username. When displaying a memo that has been sent, Notes usually uses the Principal field first, then the From field to display who sent the memo.

Hello Karel,

The reason I said "usually" is that there are some minor differences in how these fields are formed in various Notes versions. The version I was using when giving you my answers was R5.
