Send Message Extended - what populates the FROM address

List,

A coworker used SEND MESSAGE EXTENDED, which does NOT allow us to set the "FROM".
I've told him to use a different BSFN that does.

HOWEVER, I'm curious as to where the "From" is seeded.
I don't see anything obvious in JDE.INI JDEMAIL section.
(I have a talent for missing the obvious though...)

The threads that I found here don't identify where it is sourced.

What populates the "From"?

Please and Thanks

I've read the attachments several times, but don't see what I'm looking for
which is "what populates the "FROM (sender)" portion of the email.

We have a batch job, that is populating "FROM" as being one of our end-users.
Recipients of the emails are replying, and those replies are going to that user.

The coder who originally wrote this can't remember if this was an issue when he implemented,
and, if it WAS, was got changed to correct this.

CNC section should help and be more definitive but I always thought you'd get emails from [email protected] or [email protected] the name of your smtp server (setup in your ini)

If you want control over the from email address being sent then you'd have to use B0800603 or B0500725 for attachments etc

By sheer chance, the user who is running the report "mentioned" that his AB#
had been overridden via "personalization, my system options, user profile revisions",
to be that of the user who was being swamped w/emails.

We could have resolved this much earlier had we realized that.

Bottom line, it is sent "from" the who's who of the AB# associated w/who is signed on.

Thanks, all, for your assistance with this.

The from will address will come from F01151 based on the following criteria:

SELECT EAAN8, EAIDLN, EARCK7, EAETP, EAEMAL, EAUSER, EAPID, EAUPMJ, EAJOBN, EAUPMT, EAEHIER, EAEFOR, EAECLASS, EACFNO1, EAGEN1, EAFALGE FROM JDE_CRP.CRPDTA.F01151 WHERE ( EAAN8 = 1.000000 AND EAIDLN = 0.000000 ) AND ( EAEHIER = 1.000000 AND EAETP = 'E' ) ORDER BY EARCK7 ASC

EAAN8 is the AB of the user in F0092. If no electronic address is found, the from address comes from the JDE.INI

Thanks a lot.
it really helped when many end users reported that their email address is in part of "From"address for emails triggered in their user session.
