Outlook Express / Outlook 2000/2002
To change your Display Name and Display Address (the name and address that appears on all outbound mail)…
Open Outlook Express / Outlook 2000/2002 (which ever client you use)
Go to the ‘Tools’ menu and select ‘Accounts…’
Select the account you wish to change (usually your ‘Default’ account) and click ‘Properties’
Under the ‘General’ tab, you will see fields for ‘Name’, ‘Organization’, ‘E-mail address’ and ‘Reply address’.  The “E-mail address” field is your DISPLAY address.
You may input anything you like in these fields, capitalized and spaced the way you want. 
      Name:  When someone receives an e-mail from you, what you place in the ‘Name’ field will appear before your e-mail address.
      Organization:  In most cases, your Organization will not be displayed in the message.  It will be hidden away in the message header.
      E-mail address:  Your e-mail address will appear after your name.  If you don’t input a name, your e-mail address will be the only info displayed in the ‘From’ line.
      Reply address:  When someone receives an e-mail from you and clicks the ‘Reply’ button, the response will be addressed to the address you put in this field.  If you leave this field blank, the “Reply address” will default to the address in the “E-mail address” field.

Rich, I am thinking that these should not be under your name.. Maybe eMailCustomerService@IC or something like that..

 

Thoughts?

Mike

I have a lot of email messages on my computer. Couple weeks ago I had an unpleasant problem with them. Fortunately my friend called me up and recommended me a tool - fix broken pst file. To my surprise the software resolved all my troubles for a minute. Moreover it helped me for free as I kept in mind.

Rick, I have tried changing the email address field in User Info. in Outlook 2007 and the program will not send and receive unless I have the same email address as my login for SBC. I really would like to put my business email address in the "reply" area and "from" area which I think "user info." would do. Do you know of any utility program that would help? Thanks.
