When I use webmail, my messages are sent from a strange email address (like username@viewsic.mayfirst.org). How do I change that?

When you send a message using webmail/Horde, your from address may look strange – for example, it might read something like: username@malcolm.mayfirst.org or username@albizu.mayfirst.org.

That’s because you have not set your from address in your personal settings.

With the Horde/IMP webmail program, you can control how your email messages are sent by setting up your Default Identity:

  • Click Options
  • Click Personal Information
  • By default you will see the settings for your “Default identity.”
  • Enter any changes you would like (most importantly your from address)
  • Optionally, you can also make new identities that will allow you to send mail from different email accounts. If you add more than one identity you’ll get a drop-down every time you send me that will give you the option to choose from the identities you have created.
