We've recently re-installed our Sharepoint 2007 server, and migrated the old content.

Previously if a user edited a calendar, the notification email sent out would appear as though it's from the editing user. For example:

Joe Bloggs makes a new calendar appointment. A notification email is sent out, appearing as though the email is from [email protected]

This is no longer happening on our new system.

In the "Outgoing E-Mail Settings" of our Sharepoint system, the "From address:" field is blank at the moment. We use Exchange as our email server.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

You should just need to specify an email address in that outgoing email address and emails generated by SharePoint will come from that user.

  • That field only allows you to specify a single email address. We would like it to show the email address of whichever user made the edit.
