hide from address

i was asked by a client of mine whether i can set up his email "not to show his name from fiel"
that is, if i send i email to you then you will not be able to know that i sent you.
i have no idea whether this can be done nowadays.

it's doable, but there are a lot of spam filters now that block messages with blank sender.

better bet would be to set up a no-reply@ address and send on behalf of it. at least then there's a buffer

Many SMTP servers will not send mail without a 'From:' address.  It is one of the Required header fields.  And if I get an email with no 'From:', I delete it without looking at it.  I don't do any kind of business with unidentified people.
