Controlling The "From" Field Through Customised Mail Function

Just like some of you, i hate to see the mails generated by the scheduled agent coming to my users mail box with the server name as the sender ( From field ). Creating special ID to sign the agent will be tedious, having to cater for multiple agents and agent security. Also, you may want to customised the from fields to show different names based on type workflow. Now, you can control what the recipients see in the mail header by using...

this SendMemo() function instead of the usual doc.Send() If you are a perfectionist, error trapping can be introduced within the function to return error code so that your agent could retry at a later time. Sub SendMemo( memo As NotesDocument ) Dim session As New NotesSession Dim thisdb As NotesDatabase Dim mailbox As NotesDatabase Set thisdb = session.CurrentDatabase Set mailbox = New NotesDatabase( thisdb.server, "mail.box" ) memo.recipients = Evaluate( "SendTo:CopyTo:BlindCopyTo",memo ) memo.PostedDate = Now Call memo.save( True, False ) Call memo.CopyToDatabase( mailbox ) End Sub 'Sample calling code ( from a hotspot button ): '---------------------------------------------- Sub Click(Source As Button) Dim session As New NotesSession Dim db As NotesDatabase Dim doc As NotesDocument Set db = session.CurrentDatabase Set doc = New NotesDocument ( db ) 'Initialize fields ....... 'Required fields: doc.Form = "Memo" doc.From = "Guess Who?" doc.SendTo = "Danny Kong" doc.Subject = "..." 'Optional fields: doc.CopyTo = "James Tan" doc.BlindCopyTo = "Stephanie Lee" doc.ReplyTo = "somebody@dannykong.com" 'Send the document Call sendmemo( doc ) 'Delete the sent document( if required ) Call doc.Remove( True ) End Sub
