Removing "From" field Outlook 2003 with 2 mailboxes configured
Posted on 2010-08-23
Unable to permanently remove/hide the "From" field when sending a msg from a 2nd mailbox configured in Outlook 2003, altough i choose from the View menu and untick the "From" field, it keeps coming back once I reply/forward a msg from the 2nd mailbox configured (not the default).

Ya i know, that's exactly what i've been saying to the user but the user is bothered by the existence of that field, I suppose the "From" field keeps coming back when the user moves between the 2 mailboxes.
I now removed the user from the permission to "send as" and see if that field comes back.

I would like to re-open the question... the "From" field keeps coming back everytime the user clicks on the INBOX of the 2nd mailbox in outlook, after selecting a msg from the 2nd mailbox and clicking "forward" or "reply" the "From" field appears even when returning to the 1st mailbox (the default), the user DOESNT have Send As permissions over the 2nd mailbox and still the from field appears with the name of the 2nd mailbox.
How do I make it disappear ? the user can send e-mails only from it's own address anyway so I dont need that field and it bothers the user.

please click request attention above and write a note that you'd like re-open the question.
I am trying to understand this:
When you click on Forward
Go to View > From Field > uncheck the box.
Close the email.
Try to forward it again
> does this show the forward field again ?
I tested it again right now - and it doesnt.
let me know.

Yes, the "From" field keeps coming back, the moment I click on the 2nd mailbox in outlook and forward/reply a msg from the 2nd mailbox inbox that field takes over outlook even when I return to the default mailbox and choose to reply/forward a msg from there.
