Lotus Notes (Changing Name in Sender: Field)

Lotus Notes
sender
I currently use Lotus Notes to send and receive e-mail for a personalized domain (ie. info@myowndomain.ca), and am the only LN user in my organization. I would like my name to appear in the Sender: field when I send someone an e-mail (it currently shows the e-mail address). Could someone walk me through changing this setting?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well I’m a Notes developer. The way I’d do it to create a new Notes memo document in mail.box. Set the from field to be whatever you like.
If this helps let me know and i’ll mail you the code

****NOT IMPROVING – VERIFYING****
this is the best way to do it, because if you use the .SEND lotusscript method whoever the signer or agent initiator is will be the sender. making document straight in the mail.box with all appropriate mail fields added, you can make the “From” anyone you want as long as your server will send mail for that domain.

Why not just change the mailfile owner to whatever name you wish?

    This is a setting in the configuration document for the server. Below are snippets from Lotus Notes Administration Help There are other phrases you can use besides Common Name [CN] if that's what you want. You configure this address format using the "RFC822 phrase handling" field in the Configuration Settings document, under the MIME - Advanced - Advanced Outbound Message Options tab. Use CN as phrase -- Constructs an RFC 822-style address using a phrase part derived from the person's common name; for example, John Jones <JJones@acme.com>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.

    doc.appendItemValue(”PRINCIPAL”, “Comision FPP”); works for me. Thanks for asking, Heterochallenged. Thanks for your excellent response, BruceWayne.
