I receive emails, in a volunteer organization, to a generic email address. Can I send out an email using that email address as the from address instead of my shaw one?
It depends on how you are accessing your email accounts. If you're using and email client (program) such as Outlook, and you have both accounts configured in the program you can do this quite easily. You'll just need look for the "Show From" option somewhere in the composing window. If you need a hand with this, just reply with the program/version you're using.
If you just use Webmail to access your email only, go to Preferences, then Accounts. There you can enter a Reply-To address. Replies to emails sent from this address would go to the address entered here. You would just want to be sure to un-check this box when you're sending emails on your own behalf.
Hope this helps!
Thanks for your reply.
I only use this email address, for accessing the organizations website to send group emails, and to forward emails to my shaw account. I have never accessed a personal account using this email address.
At this time, the person in charge of the website, is not answering my questions. So I am trying to set it up myself. If I use the reply to feature, it still shows my main shaw account address, until reply is hit. Is there a way around this?
There isn't a way to stop your email address from being displayed when using the reply-to feature. You could create another Shaw email address and send from it if you're not wanting people to see your personal email. You could note that the address does not receive replies in your signature.
Thanks for your help. i guess I will have to wait for the person in charge to get back to me and set it up properly.
You're welcome kylla, just let us know if you have any more questions.
