Default Account specific "sent from" addresses

Please Login to Remove!

Bear with me, I am new to the whole Blackberry world. I am set up using a webclient account and have my work email as well as my home email working through my BB. My question is, can you make your "sent from" address account specific? What I mean is can I set my account up so when I reply to a work email the "sent from" address is one thing and when I reply to a home email it is another? Otherwise no matter what email I reply through it is only one address which, in the long run, may be a bit confusing to people emailing me. With the ability to handle up to 10 separate accounts it would seem to me like this would be an option. Thanks for any help.

Search for a program called "BBReply"; it will let you dynamically change the Sent From e-mail address. That should do the job.

No, it doesn't.

It adds a "Reply-To:" header, which isn't at all the same thing as setting a From: header.

Nothing respects Reply-To: except email clients; if you regularly deal with people and want to represent different organizations or send things to mailing lists with different subscription addresses, you cannot do this on a BlackBerry.

Default There is one possibility...

If your work e-mail goes through an Exchange server, and if you can leave your office computer on 24/7, you can use the Desktop Redirector for your work mail, and the web client for your personal mail. When you respond to mail rec'd through the redirector, it will be "sent from" your work addr, and when you respond to mail rec'd through the web client, it will be "sent from" your personal addr. And when you originate a message, you will be able to select whether it is sent through the redirector (w/ your work addr) or through the web client.

Once your accounts are set up with their own 'reply to' address;
* When composing an e-mail, scroll up to 'Using',
(wheel) Change Option select one to reflect the e-mail account you want to "send from".
eg. desktop, Blackberry or Web client xx etc.
then Send.

Yes, you can have a max of TWO From: addresses by using BES/BWC. If Redirector gives you another profile it should work there too. I've never used Desktop Redirector!

Its just a shame that you cannot manage more than that. Reply-To headers just don't cut the mustard.

Smile side note

BBReply works good. It should do what you want... if not you can always "delete" it...

you can get a copy HERE

Like I said, PauSon, BBReply doesn't do what the person is asking for.

The person wants multiple From: addresses, not Reply-To: headers.

Access your web client account through your PC and go under profiles. There is an option to change 'sent address.'

Dawg, you *probably* won't get good results unless your home e-mail happens to come through an Exchange server. Although there are users here who insist that they've been able to run the redirector w/o an Exchange server, there are many who can't, and RIM's official position is that it can't be done.

But if you have Exchange for either work or home, the redirector + BWC option works well.
