Remove "on behalf of" from messages

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.

Kendall.

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.

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.

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'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.

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?

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.

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 all, I have allowed a user to 'Send As' another generic user I have
configured for mailshots. This works fine on outlook 2003 (with only one
profile configured) talking to Exhange 2003 server. When this user sends an
email and set's the 'From' field to the generic user, the receipient receives
the email from 'User on behalf of genericuser@domain.com'.

Is there a way (other than creating a second Outlook profile) to suppress
the 'on behalf of genricuser@domain.com' and just show the email as coming
from 'Generic User'?

Many thanks

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

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!!

I have several POP3 email accounts set up as aliases to my primary Microsoft
Exchange Server account and I want to send out Meeting invites using one of
my POP3 accounts but I don't want the "On Behalf Of..." showing as the sender.

With a regular e-mail, I can do this and any replies will go back to the
alias as well, but I can't seem to set things up so that the same behaviour
happens with a Meeting request. Every Meeting goes out with "Hxxx, Chris on
behalf of Chris Hxxx" (ie: POP3 account on behalf of MSExchange account).
Can I change settings so that the Meeting request "From:" works similar to an
email's "From:"?

Thanks!

Original Title: On Behalf Of in the headers....with Outlook 2010 - How do i remove

I have 5 emails account in Outlook 2010, and I'm receiving answer to my email and it says or show On Behalf Of in the headers.... How do i remove that, I search for hours on the internet and i cant find any answers to 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,

Isis  

I would like to use an alias for my e-mail and therefore don't want the tag
line of 'sent on behalf of' to appear to the person receiving it.

Have set up extra email account on user's Outlook and given permission to
send on behalf of. Sent messages read xxxx on behalf of xxxx. How do I set it
up that receiver only sees latter email address?

Hello,

Another problem since upgrading to Exchange Server 2003...

All the people in our Office have thier own mailbox. They also open an additional mailbox called 'Office'. I have assigned full mailbox rights to each user in the office to this shared mailbox. Before the upgrade everything worked fine, but now when a person trys to forward an email that is in to 'Office Inbox' they get the following error message:

"You do not have the permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user."

If they remove the 'FROM' name before sending it works ok, but is there a way round this?

Many thanks,

Matt

While attempting to reply to a message from someone with whom I regularly
correspond via our corporate email system (Exchange 2000 with Outlook 2002
SP3 clients on Windows XP SP2 desktops), I received the error: "You do not
have the permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user." The
From field was showing in the (attempted) reply message--I never display that
by choice--and my own name was in the box. When I right-click on my name in
that field and choose Properties, I see that it is, indeed, my own Exchange
account. If I delete my name from the From field, I still get the error. From
that point on (three business days ago, now), I can't send messages at all
from Outlook on that machine. I'm fine on another machine, and even replied
to the email on which the problem started, all without issue. I have
attempted an Office Repair, as well as removing Outlook through Add/Remove
Programs, accompanied by reboots after each step in the process, and finally
a reinstall...to no avail. I'm an administrator on my own machine, if that
matters. I have no delegates set up in my mailbox, but I did try adding
myself as a delegate in order to then give myself permission to send on
behalf of myself...but I got a message to the effect that I cannot add myself
as a delegate to my own mailbox, so, clearly, the system recognizes me as me.
My company's help desk (of which I used to be a member) is at a loss, and the
ticket is currently buried in the Exchange Administrator's queue, although
the fact that it's a problem on only one machine would seem to indicate that
Exchange is fine, and Outlook is having a problem. Any ideas?

Good evening all,

I'm currently having an issue with some of my users sending mail from
a distribution list. I gave them the right "Send As" however exchange
smtp seems to add a field "Sender" in the internet header of the
message.

Sadly, this field is interpreted by some mail client (i.e : Hotmail,
Entourage...) as a "On behalf of" which is correct, but I don't want
that my user has is email revealed instead of the distribution list.

So, is there a way to remove this field to be added by the smtp
service of Exchange 2003 ?

Regards,

Lionel

Since the migration to Exchange 2003 I'm not able to have multiple e-mails accounts sending e-mail from one generic login, for example if I have a user login called Guest and Guest has permission to open Guest1 and Guest2 e-mails accounts, this works but when I try to send an e-mail from say Guest1 I receive the error message "You do not have the permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user" even though I have given Guest full access to Guest1 or Guest2 e-mail.

If I do the same thing for accounts that where created in Exchange 5.5 I have no problems, it is only accounts that have been created in Exchange 2003.

If anyone knows this problem and can tell me how to fix it I will by them a nice cold beer :-)

I'm getting all of my mail sent to me via another server in a different
location.

This is to enable me to have the same domain name (very long story)

My problem is that my email shows my incoming messages being sent from me
(from my other server).

Does anyone know a way to remove the "on behalf of" header as i cannot save
my emails correctly.

The other day, an end user reported receiving the error "You do not have
permissions to send the message on behalf of the specified user", although he
was actually logged into his own account(s) as himself.

I combed thru the MS-KB as well as the entire Web but just couldn't seem to
find anything that helped, until I found this fix in a "non-MS"
newsgroup....I am posting this here in case someone else runs into the same
issue.

The problem was caused by a Stored Password for an old domain. Once the
stored password was deleted, he no longer got the error message and was able
to send mail without issue.

To see the list of stored user names & passwords, go to Start - Run and type
in: control keymgr.dll

From here, you can Add/Remove or Edit (Properties) Stored Password
information.
Hope this helps someone out there who is stumped as we were!
