Is it possible to edit the envelope sender address?


I have 360's running 7.6.1-022.  Does anyone know if it's possible to write a message filter or content filter to manipulate the envelope sender?  I want to change the envelope sender, as it appears our out of office notifications are using that field to reply to.  I would assume it's possible to change using a filter, since BATV has the capability to change the envelope sender, but I don't think envelope sender is an actual header?  If it is a header, what's the name of it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Ryan,

There are two possible ways to alter the envelope sender email address of a message:

1- Masquerading Feature

This is a global setting and can change the Envelope senders and To:, From:, and/or CC: headers as well.

2- BCC/BCC-SCAN Message filter OR BCC Content Filter actions:

You can specity the Envelope sender email address with  this action. This will create a totally new message but exactly the same as the original one. You may need to add second action as drop to not deliver the original message. This will only change envelope from and Return-Path and will NOT change From header.

Hope this will help.
