SharePoint Designer workflow which sends mail is configured on List A and List B. Is there a way we could change the FROM address of the email in inbox to appear List A([email protected]) for List A and List B([email protected]) for List B?

I am sure this could be implemented site level but not sure about list level.

Please help.

Thank you.

  • like in case of sites. Site A will take 'Site A' as display name of sender.Site B sender's display name will be 'Site B'.

You can't specify the FROM address for email messages when you use the "Send an email" option from a SharePoint Designer 2013 workflow action.

I found this article, but i did not find a Microsoft documentation regarding it.

However I had the same problem, I installed a SharePoint plugin called I Love Sharepoint. It is for 2010, if you want/need you have to adapt id programmatically to 2013. In includes more then a workaraound to this problem; reed the docs for more information.

After that I would create a workflow for each list...
