Hi all

When ever a user posts a request through my application, a mail is usually sent out to them stating that their request is recorded and other details.

But in my send mail usually the email address that goes to the user is like this : applicationemail.domain.com

right now, i have the need to change the email address that goes to the user as: Application Name [applicationemail.domain.com]...
How would i do this..!!???

If i try to write the string "Application Name [applicationemail.domain.com]" in the from address, it gives me an error:
Illegal White spaces and If i remove the white spaces then it gives me the error - Illegal Character in local name

So please can some one guide me on how to send email with the from Address as : Application Name [applicationname@domain.com] .
Just the same way, when we send a email from MS outlook, the email address is usually of the format "USER NAME [USER EMAIL ADDRESS]"

Thanxs

Ok, i have solved my problem. Just for every ones information,
When we write
"full name<emailaddress.com>" in the from address of java mail, then the email when viewed by the recepient will show the reply to address as
"full name [emailaddress.com]".

Thanxs any ways
