    QUESTION #1. Where do I go to update www-set-mail-00?
    There is no documentation to define the placeholders in gen01/form_eng/www-set-mail-00, therefore it is difficult to know which place holders to change or move.

    QUESTION #2. Where to change the "from" address in the email that gets sent (currently it's "")?

    ANSWER #1:
    This is not currently documented as of July 2009, however there is an open request to the documentation team
    In the meantime, the values of the metadata fields should be taken from $user_dev/gen01/edit_doc_999.eng
    The order and labels can be set from there for use by the mail format.
    The free text at the bottom should also be able to be added to the www-set-mail-00 in $user_dev/gen01/form_eng.

    ANSWER #2:
    1. Add file send_mail to your $dtle_tab directory.
    cp $dtl_dev/dtle/tab/send_mail $user_dev/dtle/tab/
    2. Update email "from" address to your institution-preferred one:
    from /usr/lib/sendmail -r $1 < $TMPDIR/send_mail.$$
    /usr/lib/sendmail -r $1 < $TMPDIR/send_mail.$$
    3. start_w
    This issue is still open and was escalated to Development for further investigation <2009-10-25 01:00:03>.
