SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

For SharePoint 2007 there was a third-party addon we could install to allow the from email address to be configured in a SharePoint Designer workflow.

Does anyone know if there is something similar for SharePoint Designer 2010 workflows? I have not been able to find one.

Thanks.

Hi John, may I know the third-party addon for SharePoint 2007 that allow the "From email address" to be configured in a SharePoint Designer workflow? –  Larry Morries Sep 23 '11 at 1:17
    
    
@Tom Molskow Would you mind sharing the code you implemented for modifying the From: field in 2010 workflows? –  user6754 Feb 6 '12 at 21:58

Never tried it but this looks promising:

Useful Sharepoint Designer Custom Workflow Activities

NEW! Send Email Extended - Enhaced version of the OOTB activity. Allows you to specify the sender. Also does not break links in body.

But... Is it working on SharePoint 2010? –  Strider Sep 23 '11 at 5:46
    
It is not clear but: spdactivities.codeplex.com/discussions/270378. so I think it will work. Anyway as I stated in my answer - I never used it ... –  Vedran Rasol Sep 23 '11 at 7:14
    
Hi, i just checked it in SharePoint 2010. I worked .. :) –  Strider Sep 23 '11 at 7:45
    
I had used this on 2007, but from all indications I had seen previously it wasn't supposed to work with 2010. However, I installed it via PowerShell and it worked perfectly. :) –  John Chapman Sep 23 '11 at 15:02

I have modified the CodePlex Send Email Extended workflow activity and I am now using it in SPS 2010 for several SPD 2010 workflows - there have not been any issues. Please LMK if you would like the code and I can make it available through my Sky Drive.

Thanks!

As far as I know there is no Out of box activity to change the from address in email using SharePoint designer

Right, that's the purpose of the question. –  John Chapman Sep 23 '11 at 14:56
    
Vote down is a bit harsh. The original question referred to 2007 and was looking for something similar for 2010. It's not unreasonable to consider whether 2010 has this functionality built in. –  David Clarke Sep 23 '13 at 22:04
    
the solution in this link works for even SP2010 spdactivities.codeplex.com –  Strider Sep 24 '13 at 4:30
