Hide email adress of sender when sending on behalf of

Posted on



  • using Microsoft Outlook 2003
  • using Exchange 2007 server

What I want to do:

  • send email on behalf of xyz@example.com
  • want to hide my own exmail adress abc@example.com

I managed to have direct replies (using the answer button) to xyz@example.com. But the problem is that my own email adress is visible in sent mails. I don’t want my email adress to get public.

If there is no solution for Microsoft Office 2003, is there one for Office 2007/2010?


Outlook supports different identities. Take a look at this description: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829918/en-us

I managed to solve the same problem. I just removed the permission to “Send on behalf” on the ESM – Exchange 2003 (the target sender was a public folder). Then on the public folder “directory rights” I added the sending user with the “Send As” permision.
Worked quite well!

Hope it helps!

After struggling with this issue in Outlook 2007/2010 I decided to build my own add-on to accomplish it. I just published an article describing the problem and the solution and a link to download the free add-in: http://blog.nektra.com/main/2012/06/06/removing-the-on-behalf-of-message-from-outlook/

I will check if I can make it run on Outlook 2003 and be back soon.
