Specs: XP, P4

i have email forwarding (via a rule sending all mail with a specific subject) to another email account.

can anyone tell me how to make the new reciepient see the email as if it is from the original sender?

it is a pain that the original sender's address is not there when i hit 'reply'! i keep having to retype it!
is there another way around this??

please help!

I don't have Outlook on the machine I am presently on but if you look under Tools, Options you should find the option to include the orginal information when forwarding.

Email options
When forwarding:
Select "Include original message text."
Then the recipient will see the original message.

What I think the poster wants is to forward the email as if it came from his original sender.

I think to do so would make it SPAM.

hi, yes wizard fred is on the right track.
i'm not sure i understand about spam though? are you saying outlook 2003 will put it in my junk email folder?

on another note, i have been told on another forum about mail exchangers or mail server programs or something?

will this let me distribute email sent to one address and forward it to the right office computer so they can reply with their email address (it is send only account)??

cheers again

The only legal thing I can think of is to change the routing header "Reply To" to that of the original sender.

I consider it SPAM if you were to remove all trace of your retransmission of the message. Actually I think some mail handlers may not transmit the message if the originating address does not match the sender. If the situation is that of an internal email system, I sure someone with proper programming experience could modify the mail system to handle the problem as described.
