sendig Email from VMS-System

Hello,
i want to sent Emails from our VMS-System to other Mail Adresses. I do this over SMTP-Gatway. Now i have the problem, that the Name of the Sender must be a unique MSX-Useradress.
Is it possible, that i can setting a alternative EMAIL-Adress from my preferred Mailbox?
Is necessary, if a receiver will answering this Mail and all Incoming Mails must scanning trougha Virusscanner who is installed only on MSX-Mailsystems and not on VMS-Mailsystems.

Thank you for Hints

Manfred,

If not disabled by the system logical TCPIP$SMTP_PROHIBIT_USER_HEADERS, you can define for yourself an SMTP outbound alias. Just define the logical TCPIP$SMTP_FROM to be something like "it.is.me@my.domain.com".
This works if you're using TCP/IP services for VMS.
Hope this helps,
Kris (aka Qkcl)

You don't need to set the sender address for each user individually by defining a logical.
Set the substitution domain in the TCPIP SMTP configuration:
SET CONFIGURATION SMTP/SUBSTITUTE_DOMAIN=(HIDDEN,NAME=your-mail-domain)

Of course, on the mail server, You have to define an alias or forwarding to Your VMS system, if You want to receive mail (responses) there.
