I wrote a VB program that will automatically send emails.
What property do I have to set to alter who the mail is from?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That depends on how you are sending the mail.

the following code sits in a subroutine that has subject, mailto, and body passed to it.

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
  Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)
  objOutlookMsg.To = Trim(mailto)
  objOutlookMsg.subject = subject
  objOutlookMsg.body = body
  objOutlookMsg.Send

objOutlookMsg.From =

You can do this from a regular script as well. Just have to make sure your SMTP service is running:

Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objEmail.From = "whoever@domain.com"
objEmail.To = "whoever@mydomain.com"
objEmail.Subject = "Fresh Donuts"
objEmail.Textbody = "Tell the cops."
objEmail.Send
