I have written some VBA code to send an email from Excel 2007 using Outlook.Application and Outlook.MailItem.  My outlook is set up to access my exchange account but I have Send As permission to send from another account.  

Can anyone tell me how to change the From field to the Send As address using VBA.

Thanks

Hi, nicksbell.

Assuming that your message is in an object named olkMsg, then

olkMsg.SentOnBehalfOfName = "Some Name"

will work.

I had tried that but when the email was displayed the From box was blank so I assumed it didn't work.  However, after your reply I tried sending it and low and behold it worked.

Thanks for your help.

I think you use the .SenderEmailAddress property of the mail object.

So:-

obj.SenderEmailAddress = "someone@example.com"

SenderEmailAddress is a read-only property.  But its fine, as long as it goes from the right address I'm good.
