Sending an e-mail from an other user

If a user sends an e-mail using an agent, he seems to be the sender or the agent signer seems to be the sender if the agent is scheduled.
This is not always the desired behavior, especially in the case of scheduled agents in which the sender of the e-mail seems to be the developer of that agent or the administrator of the server.

You can customize the sender of the e-mail saving a document directly in the mail.box as the following example:

In this example the variables of type Variant sendTo, copyTo, BlindCopyTo and recipients were obtained using the Split function on a string but you can directly use an array of strings or just a string in the case of a single recipient.
Often these fields are copied from another document:

Finally in the instructions:

You can enter the sender of the e-mail.

This code was developed on Wndows 7 service pack 1 and Lotus Notes Designer 8.5.3 but works on older versions.
