Re: reply address in elm

Elm does not allow you to set a "From" line, but you can set a "Reply-To" line in Elm by creating a file called "elmheaders" in your ~/.elm directory. The contents of the file should be:

Reply-To: firstname.lastname.gradyear@alum.bu.edu
Alternatively, you can manually set your "Reply-To" line each time you send a message. After you compose your message and exit Emacs you have the option of editing the message headers; type "h" to do so. On the Message Header Edit Screen, type "r" to change your "Reply-To" line followed by the address to which you want replies sent, e.g.:

firstname.lastname.gradyear@alum.bu.edu
Press "Enter" to accept this value and then "Enter" again to exit the Message Header Edit Screen. Finally, type "s" to send your message. You should not use this option if you've created a ~/.elm/elmheaders file; doing so will create two, conflicting "Reply-To" lines.

Re: reply address in elm

Elm uses sendmail...so you have a couple options on how you can do this.
You can masquerade your host, or you can create a userdb and change the from addresses.

Since I mentioned this just a minute ago..take a look at this thread, and review the thread mentioned in it as well.
