Send email from Lotus Notes using different database other than personal .nsf

  • I am trying to send en email via Lotus Notes using VBA (in Access) but I am unable to get the email to send from a different mail database other than my personal one.


    I have tried to explicitly enter the ServerName and DatabaseName in the following section


    Code
    1. Set Maildb = session.GETDATABASE("ServerName", MailDbName)


    The below excerpt displays the entire code which still sends via my personal Mail Inbox:

    Hi,


    I would appreciate if anyone could help out in this problem, as I am facing the same issue.


    As a workaround, I am saving the mails to DRAFTs folder (of other database; by setting the values mentioned in above post) and then manually sending mails from different database. But its a pain !


    thanks in advance.

    thanks,
    DJ :)

    A workaround for this issie is to explicitly assign a value to the 'from' and 'Principal' fields. (see below)


    The email still gets sent from your personal Inbox but it looks as though it was sent from the alias/group inbox.


    Code
    1. MailDoc.From = "CN=Other Inbox Name/OU=xxx/O=yyyy"
    2. MailDoc.INetFrom = "[email protected]"
    3. MailDoc.Principal = "CN=Other Inbox Name/OU=xxx/O=yyyy"
    4. MailDoc.INetPrincipal = "[email protected]"

    You're hijacking a post as old as almost 1 year. If you have a question, start your own topic. If needed and useful, refer to this one with a simple link to it. I am locking this one.


    in addition don't post twice almost the same post, that's not wise.


    Thank you for noticing.
