    Out of curiosity, is it possible to change the e-mail alias for
    outbound internet email? For example, right now, all outbound

    I had often thought it would be nice to have an option to send using alias or real name if one is logged in and send an N netmail/fido/Inet (though I am sure if it is a fidonet message it automagically uses the Realname). Perhaps a future release, if it doesn't exist already, could default to Real Name if sending via an Email Client ... just a thought.

    I am not certain, but I suspect sending a netmail via FidoNet might follow the configuration at:

    So you'd like to give the user the option of choosing whether to use their real name or alias when sending netmail. I'll put it on the todo list.

    Out of curiosity, is it possible to change the e-mail alias for outbound internet email? For example, right now, all outbound e-mail generated from my site on my userid is dream.master@caughtinadream.com. Is there a way to change this, as a SysOp, to real.name@caughtinadream.com?

Perhaps a future release, if it doesn't exist already, could default to Real Name if sending via an Email Client ... just a thought.

    That would be a great option. Often on Fidonet, real names are preferred, both on othernets, everyone knows each other by alias.
