Mail reply address

I am sending mail from VMS to the outer world using the SYSTEM account.

However, I would like that all replies and problem announcing mails (such as rejected because...) go back to my personal mail address (xxx@ing.be).

Is that possible ? Without receiving/forwarding something on VMS ?

Re: Mail reply address

Logical name: TCPIP$SMTP_FROM
(Also: TCPIP$SMTP_PROHIBIT_USER_HEADERS)

Wim,

Do a
DEFINE TCPIP$SMTP_FROM "xxx@ing.be"
before sending mail from VMS.

Which is why TCPIP$SMTP_PROHIBIT_USER_HEADERS
exists.

Re: Mail reply address

Wilm, you can also supply the Human Readable format as well, e.g. :-

$ DEFINE TCPIP$SMTP_FROM "helpdesk@xxxxxx.co.uk (IT Helpdesk Team)"
$ DEASS TCPIP$SMTP_FROM
