Sending mail.....

P: n/a
I want to check an emailbox (that does not offer forwarding functions) and
forward the mail in it to my new account. That's not a problem.

But, I want the mails that I forward to my new email account to look and act
like they came from the original sender (i.e. when I click reply, I want the
original senders address in my Outlook's "To" field).

How do I send these messages as though they came from the original sender?

What does this have to do with .Net Programming, which is the topic of this
newsgroup? Do you want to know how to do that programmatically?

Precisely.

The problem is...I have a client that uses a blackberry to get his emails.
All of his co-workers do the same. they currently must set their Outlook
settings to leave messages on the server so the blackberry can retrieve them
also. This is filling their mail servers and causing problems getting
emails. (They could raise their email quotas, but they've already done that
once and it is getting expensive as they send and receive 15MB email home
plans as a part of their daily job duties.)

What I'd like to do programmatically is to be able to check incoming emails
and forward them to the blackberries but have the email in such a format
that the blackberry user can simply hit "reply" and have the email
pre-populated with the "to" field being that of the original email sender.

The only way I could think of to do this is some kind of programming behind
Outlook. I'd try posting the question to the Outlook programming group and
see what kind of response you get.

Good luck.

When you send email there are several fields - From:, To:, Subject:, etc.

All you have to do when you forward the emails is copy the original From:
field into the Reply-To: field. That way when the blackberry user hits
reply, the email will be addressed to whatever is in the Reply-To: field
instead of what's in the From: field.

I'm not sure HOW you would do this programatically, but that's what you want
to do.
