Ability to change From: to a name other than your own

CIO wants the ability to turn off being able to change the FROM: name to something else in the GroupWise Client

e.g From: John Smith but if he types another name in the from it will send with his name in () even if he doesn't have proxy to that account
From: Ted Jones (John Smith)

Is there a way to turn that off at the Domain or Post office level?

Thx
Christa

HI Christa,

I don't think that you can change this behavior on the client either client end or back end.

Properties of the e-mail will always show the correct, originating, address.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

As Laura said, no. It may be worthwhile to instruct your CIO that unless
the mail is signed or encrypted, there is *never* any form of guarantee
that the "from" in a mail is legit. It's extremely similar to the
written sender on a regular letter. Everybody can write everything
there. I can most easily send an email from here into your system that
from all angles seems to come from your CIO (if I know his name and
email address). That's a matter of fact in *every* email system in the
world.
