Return email address of sender

I have some code that assembles and sends an email.  It all works fine.

I am previewing the email to be sent and I would like to include the sender's email address.

Is there any way that I can use VB to return the email address of the user currently on the PC.?

Thanks for these suggestions folks.
I am out of the office now until after Easter and will try them then.

I just tried Jeff's solution and it works fine.  However, when the form is presented the field in question (the send from email address) is highlighted (has focus?)

I can't seem to remove this - any suggestions?
