Configuring multiple return addresses in Outlook requires slightly more overhead than in other email clients.
It requires that you setup two accounts that differ only in the return addresses that they place on their outgoing mail and their titles.
In this example I will first configure Outlook 2000 to use my CUIT account with my CUIT account. Then to conf
igure a second account that applies my EE return address to outgoing mail, I backup the CUIT account settings
and change the account so that it uses an EE return address.
To begin go to the tools menu then accounts...
When the internet Accounts dialog box pops up, click the add button, then select Mail...
Enter In your Name as you would like to appear on your outgoing email.
For this account, we attach our CUIT return address to outgoing emails. Enter in your CUNIX email address.
In the Email Server Names dialog select IMAP from the incoming mail server dialog box. For your incoming serv
er name please refer to http://www.columbia.edu/edu/acis/software/outlook/newacct.html.
Under Outgoing mail server enter send.columbia.edu
In the Internet Mail Logon dialog box enter your uni for the account name and your cunix password.
At this point you should have one account created. The account will not work until you have configured a few
more advanced settings which will allow Outlook to connect to the Columbia Servers. Select your mail account
from the Internet Accounts Dialog box and click properties.
When the Properties dialog box pops up select the Servers tab and check the 'My server requires authenticatio
9.Under the advanced tab, make sure that the 'This server requires a secure connection (SSL)' check box is checked for both incoming and outgoing servers.
10. At this point your email client will work with your CUNIX account and will attach your CUNIX return address to all outgoing mail. To be able to send mail with an EE return address in the next steps you are going to back up a copy of these settings, change your current settings so that your ee mail address gets applied to all outgoing messages and then re-import your cunix settings.
We'll start by preserving our existing settings. From the internet accounts dialog box select your mail accou nt and click Export...
11. Note the directory and the file name where you are saving your settings and click 'Save'.
12. Now we are going to change your existing account so that it is called eemail.columbia.edu and it applies your ee mailing address to outgoing mail. From the internet accounts dialog box select your email account and click 'Properties'
13. Under the general tab in the Properties dialog box, change the mail account name to something like eemail.col umbia.edu. In the 'E-mail address:' Field change the address from your CUIT mail address to your EE mail addr ess. Click 'Ok' to exit.
14. Now when you are in the Internet Accounts dialog box you should see a single mail account titled eemail.columbia.edu. This account will send mail with your EE address set to be the return address. Now let's reimport our original settings so that we can send outgoing mail with our CUNIX address also. Click 'Import...' and import the account settings which you exported earlier.
15. If you have successfully imported the account you should see two accounts in the Internet Accounts dialog box . Click 'Close'
16. Now if everything has been setup correctly, when you compose a new message, you should be able to select betw een return addresses using the drop down menu next to the send button.
