Remove "On behalf of " in header

I have MS outlook 2002, and different email accounts (pop and imap).

When I setup for an IMAP account, I have to fill in a username and mail
address.
Specially when I send a message from address@mydomain any other mail (with
another "from" address) will show the "sender on behalf of
address@mydomain message.

How can I prevent Outlook to add this text?

The reasen is tha I use a lot of addresses@mydomain.
E.g. a ebay account will have ebay@mydomain. When I get a message from ebay
and reply to it, the message will have the header/from "ebay@mydomain on
behalf of addresses@mydomain" where it should only show the ebay@mydomain
address.

Thanks in advance,

Frank

All,

Firstly let me explain what we have running at our company:

- Exchange 2003 with service pack 2 is running on our windows 2000 server
- Outlook 2000 is used by all our users.

I can send an email on behalf of another user from my mailbox. When someone
recieves this email.... in the from field, the recipent can see that I have
sent the email on joe bloggs behalf....

So for example... if "mark" sends an email on behalf of "david" to "John",
Upon recieving the email, John can see in the from field...."from mark on
behalf of david".. I only want it to say "david" in the from field... any
ideas? All i want to do is get rid of the "xyz on behalf of" in the from
field

I have setup through active directory the ability to send emails on behalf
of someone else. I have on david's account under Exchange general > Delivery
options > Added "mark" on the "grant this permission to section" Is this the
correct way?

Also note:

- This situation has occured on other groups of people within the company
who use different mailboxes . Therefore I dont think the problem lies with
an individual, within an individual's outlook setting...
- This problem has started happenning since we upgraded to exchange 2003
from 2000
- Is there something i need to do in the registry keys on our email
server???

HELP HELP.!!! look forward to hearing from you soon.

I'm using Outlook 2007 & Windows XP.

I use virtual emails for my clients & when sending emails, if I use the
"From Field" in a new message, the recipient will show my email "was sent on
behalf of" my virtual e-mail.

(example... mrsmith@bellsouth.net; on behalf of; pcrepairs@bellsouth.net)

How do I remove the "Sent on behalf of" so only my virtual email is shown?

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,
I have just upgraded from exchange from 2000 to 2003. I found that now
email delegates sent will show "on behalf of" in the sender field. Could
anyone please tell me how to hide it? I just want to show the mailbox user
name but not the delegates.
Thank you very much

We'd like to remove the "On Behalf Of" when sending to a list in Outlook
2003. How do I change the format of an email messages?

Hi,
I'm using Outlook 2003 with two "normal" email accounts, one IMAP and
one POP3, and some "outbound" fictitious POP3 accounts which are only
used to send mail from different addresses.

All sent mail must be found in the Sent folder of the IMAP account,
except for mail sent from the "normal" POP3 account which must be in the
Sent folder of that same account.
Unfortunately, by default Outlook puts all sent mail in the Sent folder
of the POP3 account.

The only way I found to work around this is to deactivate the option to
keep a copy of all sent mail, and then manually create a rule which
moves all sent mail to my desired IMAP folder, *except* for mail sent
from the POP3 account, which is moved in the proper Sent folder by a
second rule.

This has its disadvantages, but it works. One annoyance, though, is that
when I print any sent mails the From header appears like "John Smith
[john@smith.com] on behalf of John Smith", instead of the usual "John
Smith [john@smith.com]".

How can I remove the "on behalf of" part?
Or, even better, is there a different way to work around the sent mail
problem?

Thanks.

MS Outlook 2007.

 

Recently had cause to start to use another email account for a new group I am liaising with, and which I want to send and recv via my normal PC outlook.

The mail works fine sending and recieving, however one aspect I didnt want is that recipients of the new group see my originating persoanl email address in their mails because in the header there is the text which reads.....

Self [Self@Hotmail.com] on behalf of Me [Me@Sky.com]

 

So I am sending and recieving to the new group of people all matters pertaining to the group from my Hotmail account, but they can all see my other personal and unrelated email address, which I definately do not want.

I am told this probably isn't a Sky thing, but an Outlook thing.  Can anyone tell me if it can be removed by unchecking a tick box in settings, or something fairly simple like that ?

 

Thanks for any pointers.

I am on a Win server 2003 domain, Exchange server 2003, outlook 2003
environment.
I have an issue with (send on behalf of ) that I can't explain.
I have a user mailbox that a few users in my IT department have access to.
All of them have access to this mailbox and they have to reply to many
emails send to this mailbox.
I assigned all of these users (send on behalf of) permissions so when they
reply to emails on this mailbox so the receipients will see who replied to a
message.
The issue I am having is that 3 of the users when they reply to emails of
this mailbox everything works out just fine,
the other 3 users when they reply on behalf of this mailbox it does not show
in the receipint's end that the message was from X user on behalf of this
mailbox, it shows this mailbox's name.
If they change the from field to the name of the actual submitter the
recipient sees that the message came from the X user.
The first 3 users that have no issues are domain admins and exchange full
admins.
The 3 users that have this issue don't have this kind of access but they all
are set up the proper way to send of behalf of this mailbox.
This mailbox was migrated from an exchange 5.5 server and all 3 other
users's mailboxes that do not experience the issue were migrated from EX 5.5.
THe mailboxes of the user's that are having the issue are mailboxes created
on EX 2003.
I am not sure why this is happening and I hope that somebody will have an
answer for this.

Hi,
We would like to set up a shared mailbox.
We have a support@ mailbox set up and have created delegate access for several users.
They have added the mailbox to their Outlook profile and can send email. However, we just want the 'From' to say "Support" and not "Andrew on behalf of support".
I have tried granting full mailbox control.
I have also been into the advanced permissions of the Support user in the SBSUsers folder in Active Directory. I granted the users the 'Send As' permission.
Is there anything I missed, or is this simply not possible?
Thanks.

Hi,

I have set up 2 POP accounts in Outlook 2007.
The default POP a/c is DavidB@domain.com and the second POP a/c is
KarinB@domain.com

When I want to send an email from KarinB, I open a new email, and I
change the "From:" field to KarinB@domain.com

The receiver sees the email as "From: DavidB sent on behalf of KarinB"

I don't want this, all I want is for it to say "From: KarinB"

Can anyone help me on this issue please? I have seen various posts but
they relate to Exchange accounts - these are 2 pop a/c's and they are
not using Exchange.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a forwarding system set up with my domain using various webmail
accounts. However, when sending emails via either Googlemail or Inbox.com,
instead of just my domain-name address appearing at the top of the message,
'on behalf of xyz@googlemail.com or xyz@inbox.com' appears. Does anyone know
a way to remove this? Not the end of the world, but I would like to keep
these addresses private and just give out my domain-name addresses.

Many thanks.

How do I remove the "on behalf of" in a delegate's email FROM area?

I saw several postings regarding this issue however the solutions don't seem
to work for me!

I have a Win2003 SBS server access by both MS Outlook 2000 & MS Outlook 2003
clients. A few users access shared mailboxes. When they reply to an email
that was sent to a shared mailbox the reply is from the user "on behalf of"
the shared mailbox.

The user was added to Exchange General Delivery Options Send on behalf -
Grant Permission To AS WELL AS added to Exchange Advanced Mailbox Rights.

What other changes do I need to make in order for the replies to NOT show
"on behalf of" but come directly from the shared mailbox!?!

Thanks in advance!!


Just a couple of days ago - all of a sudden - all of my emails are going out as "On behalf of" because my outgoing mail is being used to send my emails @company.com. I am using Bell's outgoing server to send email. I have not had a problem using Outlook 2003 and now Outlook 2007 until now. We do not use Exchange. To summarize, I have a company email account that I access through Outlook 2007. It uses my Bell internet account to send the emails. All of a sudden, all my emails say "myname@sympatico.ca; on behalf of; My Name [myname@company.com]" in the Send field. The only solutions I've seen involved Exchange servers which I do not have. How do I get rid of this?


I have my website email set up as one of my accounts in Outlook 2007. It worked fine until a few days ago. When I send an email from this account now, the receiver gets "sent on behalf of" text on the From line. I don't want people to see that; I only want my webmail account to show.

Thanks,

When I an add an account to an existing account to send on behalf of, in outlook I get the following message when i try to open the account "The operation failed. An object could not be found" I am running exchange 2003 on windows 2003 server. Outlook is also 2003.. Please help.

Hi all!

I read:

-----------------------------------------------------------
For example, if a user called USER1 has been given such rights for USER2,
then USER1 can send a message on behalf of USER2. If you want to create a
rule such that all messages sent by USER1 on behalf of USER2 are moved to
a folder called Sent On Behalf Of USER2, nothing in the Rules wizard lets
you do that.

One solution is to create a custom form that will be preset to a category
called "Sent On Behalf Of." In this example, USER1 can use this form
whenever he or she sends mail on behalf of USER2. You can then create a
rule that checks messages after they are sent, checks if the category is
set to Sent On Behalf Of and, if so, moves those messages to a specific
folder (or processes those messages in other ways).

http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;247847
------------------------------------------------------------------

There is only one problem: it does not work.

I configured a delegate access (specially for an option 'send as' in
Outlook) + full mailbox rights and then I add additional mailbox in
Outlook 2003 client, create a custom form, rule "that checks messages
after they are sent" and unfortunately it does not work.

Any idea? :)

First time poster here :-)

I would like some info about setting myself up to better support one of my
managers. We have Outlook 2003 on XP Pro and an Exchange Server. What I
think I'd like to be able to do is to reply to his emails for him. As of
yesterday I can arrange meetings and edit his calendar. (I didn't have that
access before because up until yesterday he never asked me to edit his
calendar.)

I assume I will be able to read his emails on my system? And if I reply,
there's some sort of a "On behalf of" type header? Will my name appear
somewhere so the recipients know the response is not from him directly? If I
read one of his emails before him, will it still show as unread on his
email? Will the emails he's read show up as read on my system?

I think if I had the info I needed to present to him, it might help ease
some of his stress. And then again, it may transfer over to me...... hmm,
maybe I need to rethink this. ;-)

How exactly do you send email so that the receipient sees that you are
sending it "on behalf of" another email address.

When I have received email from people that says "on behalf of" in the from
box, it is under one of two circumstances...

1) An email that I sent to someone is forwarded to a second email of their.
WHen they reply from that second email address, the from box shows "[second
email address] on behalf of [Name] [first email address]". In this case,
when I reply, the message is sent to the original address.

2) When someone sends an email to a distribution list that I receive emails
from, the from box shows "[distribution email address] on behalf of [Name]
[Person's email address]".

I recently set up an account to forward emails to another email account.
However, when I reply, the original sender does not get notice that I am
sending on behalf of the original email address, nor does their reply get
directed to the original address. How do I set this up?

When I try to execute the following code from excel I get the messages
returned to me.
with the following message returned back. I can execute the code from
other computers and other accounts without this problem. According to
the server side people all of these accounts are identical so there
should be a problem sending on behalf of. In addition this user can
send on behalf of this address to this person manually, but for some
reason when then VBA runs the emails get sent back to her.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Gil
