It can be done, but isn't pretty.

You have take the attachment and convert it in to base64 text (you realise that attachments in email are just plain text encoded in a different format) then you have to copy and paste that content in.

Yuck. I did it once and vowed never again.

A program?
You mean like Outlook Express? :-)

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

outlook express (or outlook since we are on a domain with exchange server) would give my name in the from field. i want a different name. but dont want to make a different user :)


and i found a program. Its called mailsend. works great.

Blat may also have worked for this as well.

Outlook Express was rather a tongue in check comment, as you didn't make it clear what you wanted to do.

We are trying to send internal mail to users but (ahem, spoof) the from field. We have an intranet and the person (outside contracter) who handles it can do it will a SQL stored procedure (i think thats what she calls it) but we didnt want to get that complicated since we wont be using it much. just something simple that we (I.T.) can send to users but have it say IT DEPT in the from field instead of my name or another techies name but also be able to attach files if need be. Sorry for the vagueness of the initial post.

Blat would have done the job in that case. That is what a lot of IT administrators use for emailing things from scripts.
