    From" value in GUI-generated emails

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Correct "From" value in GUI-generated email notices.

    Procedure:
    There are two components to the "From:" the name and the <email address> which must be specified on the PC which is producing the notices (the PC the Print Daemon is running on).

    1. To set the name, specify a "MailerName=" value in the [Mail] section of the PC's .\alephcom.ini.
    2. To set the email address, specify a "FromAddress=" value in the [Mail] section of the PC's .\alephcom.ini.

    <br>
    .\alephcomj\tab\alephcom.ini [Mail] on PC needs to have:<br>

    MailerName=XXX Library/Circulation Department<br>
