I am using the below sample script which I have found on EE to send emails. I am trying to change the from address in the script, but its not being sent from the FROM address given, its sending the from the same as its connecting to the server, ie: sEmailAddress

Can someone please advise?


Sub SendEmail(sSubject, sEmailText, sEmailAddress, sPassword, sTo, sCCEmailAddress, sAttachment)
    Set oEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")

    oEmail.From = "test@test.com"
    oEmail.To = sTo
    oEmail.CC = sCCEmailAddress
    oEmail.AddAttachment sAttachment
    oEmail.Subject = sSubject
    oEmail.HTMLbody = sEmailText

    sSchema = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/"
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "sendusing") = 2
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpserver") = "smtp.test.com"
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpserverport") = 465
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpauthenticate") = 1
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "sendusername") = sEmailAddress
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "sendpassword") = sPassword
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpusessl") = 1
    oEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item(sSchema & "smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60

    Set oEmail = Nothing
End Sub

Oops, sorry. I think I gave you .net code.
Should be something like this:

oEmail.From = """Test"" <test@test.com>"
