Changing from address on Blackberry with BES/Exchange 2003
Hi All

I am just wondering if anybody can help me. At the moment we are running BES 4.0 with the latest service pack and Exchange 2003.

We are trying to mask the e-mail address for our CEO's blackberry when sending mail to certain people. was wondering if anybody knew of any way of doing this on the Blackberry.

In other words, in Outlook and Exchange you can change the From field, masking the user's e-mail address. Is there any way which you can do a similar function on the Blackberry device?

Your help/thoughts are much appreciated

you cant do this from the device but you should be able to change the from address on the BES. You can only change it to one thing, and one thing only.

I tried using the Override Address option within the Redirection tab of the user but any e-mail from the Blackberry device still come from the original address it was configured for

I'm pretty certain this can't be done...the BESadmin account is setup to associate PIN xxxxxxxx with mailbox [email address] - I don't know of a way for the email to be sent from the CEO's device so that it appears (for one email) to come from [email address]
