Angry Sending E-mail As A Different User

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know a way that I can change my "sent from" e-mail address on the fly just like I can do in Outlook on my desktop?

I represent a couple of different companies and as a result, I have a couple of different e-mail addresses.

Currently, I am using the BWC to relay mail. However, I can only "send from" a single address.

If I purchase a hosted exchange / BES account, will this give me the functionality, is there another way, or can this even be done?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It has to do with your provider as much as the device. I believe T-Mobile always multiple accounts and "send-from" where Cingular and their current web-client only allow one.

There are a few recent threads talking about this very topic, you can search for too.

Sorry, I didn't realize that it depended on carrier.

I'm with Rogers.

Any ideas on how to make this work?

It won't. You can only have one Send_From address in the BWC

A workaround is if you don't mind using "Reply-To" instead, you can have unlimited email addresses now on any carrier -- Download bbReply from the Aftermarket Software forum.

However, replacing "From:" is an option only on carriers using the latest BIS -- such as T-Mobile. (multiple email addresses)

If you purchase a hosted Exchange/BES account then you can have 2 different sent from addresses. One that goes through the BES and one that goes through the BIS (web client)

Currently (as mentioned above) only T-Mobile has the ability to use multiple sent from addresses.

Does the T-Mobile ability require 4.1 handheld code?
