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.

Instead of:<br>
<br>
From: XXX Biosciences Library/Circulation Department &lt;<a href="mailto:bioscilib@xxx.edu" target="_blank">bioscilib@xxx.edu</a>&gt;<br>
<br>
site wants:<br>
<br>
From: XXX Library/Circulation Department &lt;<a href="mailto:library@xxx.edu" target="_blank">library@xxx.edu</a>&gt;<br>
<br>
.\alephcomj\tab\alephcom.ini [Mail] on PC needs to have:<br>
<br>
MailerName=XXX Library/Circulation Department<br>
