I have a message rule set up to forward all mail sent to our business email address on to my wife’s email account on her computer. The problem is that the email she receives has my account as the “Sender”, and it does not contain the email address of the original sender. Is there any way that she can receive these messages as “Forwarded from me”, rather than From me?
As Tom already knows, the easiest way to automatically forward emails from Outlook Express is to use Message Rules. This useful feature of the email client is also available in Windows Mail Vista and the new Windows Live Mail programs.
To create a Outlook Express message rule for diverting emails to others, you have to first specify the Condition/s (yes, there can be multiple) and then select the “Forward it to people” Action. – check the screenshot below.
Now to address Tom’s issue. An email forwarded by Outlook Express message rule will, unfortunately, not have the original sender’s email address. As far as the recipient is concerned the email has been sent from the account from where it was forwarded. Hence, the “From” field will show Tom’s email address.
But there is a way out though it’s not “automated” and can be quite a pain if there are tens of emails to be forwarded each day. Here is what I suggest:

Though Bravo was never released commercially, its direct descendant was included in the Xerox Star. WYSIWYG, Ethernet, GUI, bitmap graphics and several computer technologies that we used today have been developed at the Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). [more...]
