Especially in the SMB market, where people are working for/under different organisations, but using only one mailfile/Notes-Identity it would be nice to have a way to select from different sending addresses, when sending to the internet, like some other mail clients do (drop down list or so).

It would also be very useful when answering mail for e.g. a support or sales mailbox to make the sender "" or "". Much can be done with the Principal-field but I've always found it a bit of a kludge and you have to create code to use it... Just as long as the real sender is somewhere in the header, mind you, or it'll be an open relay.

And not only the sender's address should be selectable, the signature too.
3) Jens-B. Augustiny848 (26 Jun 2008)
Yes, selectable signature whould be the logical next step

Can't you simply use a location document for this - just swap between the two sending email addresses?

The signature can be swapped by implementing Crossware Mail Signature. This is a server based utility for appending signatures.

You can access a trial from the Crossware Mail Signature website ({ Link }

Hey, Paul, thats SPAM without telling us so in clear text!

Yes, you can use Loc-Docs for that, but have you ever been sending out emails witht the wrong sender address? Users seek for a simple solution like the one in that product, that is "looking out of the window" or like Thunderbird, thats a lot different than switching LocDocs
