Hi, how can I change the "from" field value in sending outgoing messages?

It always have the same address even if it send by different users. And I noticed the value of "uid" in mail_mail.py is always "1" so it always get the same email outgoing address.

Thanks!

Can you give an example of what you do to only have the same from address. It depends on the setup of each models. If you give me a example that I can reproduce, i will give you a way to do this .. Think some models aren't setup correctly for this ..

Hi Nicolas JEUDY,

I configure the outgoing mail server by going to Settings > Outgoing Mail Server http://s1353.beta.photobucket.com/user/user02132013/media/one_zps05143b89.jpg.html (Outgoing Mail Server) [cont]

I am wondering the same thing. I have a user who has a different email address and domain that they need to send from. I.e. their usual address is user@domain1.com that they send and receive from, however they sell a different product also and a mail must be sent from user@domain2.com. How do i do this? I have changed the from and reply to fields in the template but it has no effect on the mail delivered

Hello,

The email_from of send emails is the email address of the message author. Having multiple users sending emails with the same email_from seems odd if they effectively have different email addresses.

Note that prior to revision 8628 of the addons, there was a bug leading to the administrator email address being chosen for the email_from of some notification emails (emails going through the mailgateway). This could explain the results you obtained. But this has been fixed.
