    Client is requesting an e-mail database to automatically respond to
    each e-mail it receives (I.E. Thank you for your e-mail, somene will
    respond shortly)

    My answer was to build an agent that runs "Before Mail Arrives". Using
    @MailSend the database will effectively respond to each e-mail
    received, but the problem is the application server's name appears is
    the sendin the e-mail. Basically I want it to show coming from the
    mailin database itself, not my application server to avoid client's
    confusion...

    Thanks in advance!

    I suppose there is not a way to programmatically change where the
    e-mail comes from?

    If I use the "simple actions" the e-mail shows to come from myself
    (which I absolutely don't want). The alternative was to use the formula
    @MailSend with appropriate parameters, but now the e-mails are
    addressed from the name of the development server, not the mailfile. So
    if a user simply replies to sender, my mailin database will never know
    about it.

    You could try adding "RepyTo" and "Principal" fields to the document before
    mailing. I'm not sure if this works with @Mailsend, but it does with
    Lotuscript.

    You could only change the "from" with Lotusscript.
    Change the principal field to the apropriate user if its only intended
    to be used inside a notes environment.
    If the message leaves to the internet (over SMTP) you have to alter the
    field SMTPOriginator too.

    Thanks for the info Tim and Urs. I was hoping for some trick with
    formula but I can rebuild with lotusscript without too much headache.
    Thanks!
