We have recently changed the email services. The previous service allowed us to make SMTP connections without TLS. The new service requires TLS.
We have a couple applications that need to send email...and (of course) they do not support TLS.
To work around this, we configured the IIS 6 SMTP service to relay mail to the new service. We created a local domain user firstname.lastname@example.org and used these credentials in the applications.
We can now send email from the applications, BUT the from address is "email@example.com on behalf of firstname.lastname@example.org".
Two questions: 1) Is there a way to get the from address to be simply "email@example.com"? 2) Is there a better way to do this?
BTW --- we have this trouble with an internal app running on Win7 AND with an external app that is hosted on Win2003. Unfortunately, these applications are also third-party so we can't just break em open to add support for TLS.
