Customizing SMTP from address when using Exchange 2000

P: n/a
Sorry for the post here but could not find an Exchange
newgroup.

I developed an application a year or 2 ago that sends
SMTP email. The application allows the user to customize
the text from address. is "My Custom Name"
Ja***@Yahoo.com.

When the email was received into my companies Exchange
5.5 mail system the custom name was kept intact. Now that
Exchange 2000 has been implemented the custom name is
ignored and it is my understanding that Active Directory
is searched for a matching name and the name from Active
Directory is used instead. So, Working within that
context I would like to know how to enable the use of
custom from names. Using an invalid SMTP address so
Active directory is unable to locate the user account is
not an option as I am not trying to create SPAM.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your post. If I understand your problem correctly, you want to
configure Exchange Server 2000 to keep the custom name intact like Exchange
Server 5.5. This is beyond the scope of this newsgroup (regarding .NET
development) and would be best handle by the Exchange Server group. For a
quicker response you may want to try reposting the question in the
newsgroups under Microsoft.public.exchange2000, also for future reference
you may want to try posting questions of this nature to the
Microsoft.public.exchange2000 to avoid any delays in getting a response.
Unfortunately the Microsoft.public.exchange2000 newsgroup is not part of
the managed newsgroup list that we guarantee a 2 business day response, so
the response from the community could take a little bit longer. For a list

Actually,

I don't wish to have anything to do with our companies
Exchange servers. I have a .Net Application that sends
email and the from address is customized. When I send
SMTP to my work colleages the customized name is ignored
and it is replaced with the name found in Active
Directory. So, my question is how can still send SMTP
mail with a custom From address and the name is not
changed by the exchange server.

As an example:
Jason is an employee at ABC.COM. When he sends out a
weekly newsletter the from address is:
"Weekly News" <Ja***@ABC.COM>

Before the company installed Exchange 2000 the email
would appear as from:
"Weekly News" <Ja***@ABC.COM>

Now that the company installed Exchange 2000 the email
appears as from:
"Jason" <Ja***@ABC.COM>

So, Nothing to do with changing Exchange, what I need to
do is figure out how to format the email so the custom
name is not replaced by Exchange..

Thanks
Jason

Hi, Jason

What technology are you using to send mail, and what programming language?

What I would like you to try is to implement the code in the following
Knowledge Base article and see if you experience the same problem:

314201 HOWTO: Send E-mail Programmatically with System.Web.Mail and Visual
Basic.Net
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=314201

If that works and you have problems translating the sample to whatever
programming language that you are using, please let me know and I will
attempt to locate a more appropriate sample.

Thank you for choosing the MSDN Managed Newsgroups,
