Using Different "Reply Address" in Outlook


J

JP

I'm not sure which Newsgroup would be more appropriate so I try both
Exchange and Outlook.

Our organization has two email domains, one hosted by an ISP and the other
maintained in-house. In the office, we already have an Exchange server
hosting mail for Domain-A. All the workstations are running Outlook 2000 to
connect to their mailboxes. The ISP is hosting email of Domain-B for us.
Users are using web access to connect to the ISP to get messages for
Domain-B.

I am trying to standardize Outlook 2000 as the only email client by adding
the mail profile of Domain-B. To do this, I change the profile settings of
the clients to add an "Internet Mail" location, which has the POP3 server
address pointed to the ISP. As for SMTP server address, I use the address of
the Exchange server.

I can now receive messages of both Domain-A and Domain-B from Outlook. All
the incoming messages are delivered to the Exchange mailbox (not personal
folder). But whenever I reply to any messages sent to Domain-B, I have the
"sender's address" and "reply address" shown as Domain-A. It is because all
out-bound messages are actually handled by the Exchange Server, which has
the domain name set up that way. I would like to have the reply address
displayed in accordance to the domain name it received from. Is there any
way I can do it?

May be a bit OT - but is there any reason you don't want to host domain B
mail on the Exchange server also, rather than "decentralizing" your mail by
relying on Outlook to handle this mail? It would resolve this issue for you
and make your general admin a lot easier.....

Good point, Lanwench. I am actually starting to do the migration. That's
why I want to centralize everything in Outlook. But during the
transistional period (change of MX and A records in DNS), I do not want to
miss any incoming messages. Again, I don't want to confuse customers by
showing a different reply address.

Thanks for bringing it up.

Cheers,

Joe

Change the delivery method on the clients to use internet
email instead of exchange.
