    Get Rid of Outlook "on behalf of" When Sending Messages

    Here's some info:

    I use Outlook.com as my email provider.
    I have a web address - me@myaddress.com

    When someone sends an email to me@myaddress.com, the website automatically forwards it to the me@outlook.com address. I have added the address in Outlook.com as an alias, which enables me to send email as me@myaddress.com - to the recipient, they cannot see I use outlook.com as my interface.

    I have a subscription to Office so want to start using Outlook the program to handle my email (from various accounts). I know there is the Windows 10 Mail app but it isn't that great and is a little slow to sync.

    I know there was a system to set outgoing email to send that through my web server, and thus it wouldn't send "on behalf of", but is there a way to do this with Outlook the program?

    Thank you

    Hi SirTophamHatt

    I use Outlook and I set my default mail account to something other than my outlook.com account. There is a setting in Outlook 2016 that all new email come from the default account but that would have you remember to change for replies. I can't find a way to set for replies.


    will show you setting.

    Even with this I still think there will be an issue, in particular receiving duplicate mail.

    I think you are going to install Office 2016 Outlook. Then I imagine you are going to setup your Outlook.com account as an EAS account. This will Sync mail, calendar, contacts and tasks. There is no way to change the servers that I'm aware of although you might be able to set up account manually. ( I can't recall if it gave option and it might cause sync issues.)

    This would mean, I think, that to send mail directly from your SMTP server @myaddress.com you would have to set up that account. Then it would want to receive email, which could potentially mean the same mail in two places, once from your forwarding and once in @myaddress.com inbox.

    I guess you could set outlook 2016 in the send / receive groups not to receive email for your @myaddress.com account. Not sure how you forward mail, some systems forward and keep copy, others forward and don't keep. This to would reduce duplicates.

    That slipstick.com address above is my go to site for Outlook questions.
