is there any way to change the from address in mac mail? I'm not familiar and am trying to help a freind configure their outgoing email address just like one can do using outlook express in windows.

    I think you are confusing the "from" address with the "reply to" address.

     

    In  Mac Mail the "from" address field is used to select the email account that you wish to use to send the the message.  It is a drop down list box for selecting the account.

     

    The "reply to" field is a text box that you can type anything into (like in your linked article).  If the "reply to" field is not visible in the message edit window, you can add it with the View > Reply to Address Field menu item.

    No. That is a recipe for spamming.

     

    You can choose which account to send the email from ( = reply to) in the compose window.
