Reply To Email Using Original Recipient Address

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Martin Harran, Jan 27, 2005.

  1. I'm using Outlook Express 6.0

    For spam tracking purposes, I use various names in the format
    - I basically create a new email adrress every time I
    register on a new site in the format . A Catchall
    redirects these to a single POP account.

    When I click on Reply, its opens the new mail showing the From field as the
    email address I have set up on my default POP account. The only way I can
    find to Reply using the email address that the original email was sent to,
    is to set up a copy of the POP account with that email adddress and select
    it manually in the From drop-down box.

    Is there any way - a simple script perhaps - that I can automatically fill
    the From field with the email address to which the original email was sent?

    No, because there is no way of knowing which is the original from address as
    all mail forwarders put on a their own header. What you are presently doing
    is the best way.
