Is it possible to set the “From” field using the MAPI OCX. what I’m trying to achieve is that no matter from which workstations the e-mail will be shout-out, the “From” field must be firstname.lastname@example.org By default MAPI fill the From field using the e-mail address of the user for the workstation. email@example.com Edited by - Tarek Demiati on 2001 Jun 06 04:11:16
No, unfortunately the MsgOrigAddress and MsgOrigDisplayName properties of the MAPIMessages control are read-only, both for received messages and for the compose buffer. Kind regards, Jan Hoek Weha Automatisering BV
Is there any work around ? Maybe by using the Microsoft Outlook Automation ? Has anyone got any experience in forcing the “From” to field to a specific e-mail address from Navision ? firstname.lastname@example.org
This could be not really a Navision solution… but a working one. Create on all workstations an e-mail account definition on their current default mapi e-mail program using the company data you want, and set it to default account. When just sending e-mail the server (at least most of them) won’t test any password, so you won’t need letting them access to the incoming e-mail, but the address will be correctly shown on destination. – Alfonso Pertierra email@example.com Spain
Better than previous answer… you can try using this OCX instead of MAPI one… i’ve tried a few minutes ago and it really works on changing the from values… download – Alfonso Pertierra firstname.lastname@example.org Spain
Can anyone provide examples of how to use this new ocx from within Navision?
