The bad news: you cannot do that, using the Designer and change the form. This is how Domino and Notes are constructed, the Sender of a message is always visible.

The good news: there are ways to bypass the problem.

A. You can ask your users to switch id, to the Team id, e.g. using a Location document. It's not a very practical solution, because they might want to switch rapidly back an forth to their own id and that isn't really possible.

B. You can do some programming that writes the mail directly in the "mail.box" database. This is the router's own database, its work queue. The Router process will pick up anything it finds in its queue and then tries to send it out. No need to use the Principal field, and you can set From to the team's mailbox address.

C. You can develop something in C that uses the Extension Manager ... Far too difficult, so try solution B.

There is a mail template on OpenNTF that uses the mail.box approach. See also this question: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28332340/Email-Sent-from-Mailbox-as-Another-Group-or-Person.html

Impossible. The only way is to create and save the mail directly in the mail.box database.

I once offered to eat my hat in case someone found an "impossible" solution, but after eating it twice I lost my appetite!

But if you find a different solution, I'd love to hear all about it!

Huh? No result? I told you how it's supposed to be done, and that there's no other (quick) solution. To me, that's a result, isn't it?

Sometimes, "no" or "not possible" just is the right answer... I would really have liked to help you with a new solution, so I'm wondering what you did to bypass the problem. Did you create the mail directly in the mail.box database? In fact it would only be a new Send button in the group mail database.
