When 'sending as' a public folder, is it possible to hide the address it's sent from?

Basically, I've set up a public folder and given myself send as permissions. This all works fine after permissions filtered through. However, when the test mail hit my hotmail account, it shows the name of the public folder (which I want) but also, in brackets, the address it came from. What I want to do, is hide it or show something differently.

The reason being, we handle work from other clients here and documents generated are then emailed to our customers. At the moment, this is all handled by individual mail accounts held on a 3rd party mail hosting server and our users access these via POP or IMAP.

What I wanted to do was set up mail enabled public folders, use a pop connector to pull the mail down from the existing accounts to these folders for all to see. The users then need to be able to reply or send from this folder to our clients, without our Exchange address being seen (just the name of the public folder which I can name to match the original pop accounts).

Hope this is clear and is it at all possible?

I guess what you are talking about is the email address in brackets after the public folder name? So, the outgoing email might have a From address of My Public Folder 1 <PF1@domain.com>.

Unfortunately, it's not possible for you to remove that address from the outbound email. You can obviously change it by adding a different email address to the Mail Enabled Public Folder, and setting that address as the Primary/Default address. However, that address listing cannot be removed completely; it would probably be a breach of the SMTP RFCs, and many MTAs would reject email without a From email address for spam purposes.

Thank you. I suspected the reasons behind why there wasn't an obvious solution :)
