SelectiveSenderName for Microsoft® Exchange 2007/2010

 
  Customer Care Center 
Updated: 7-June-2010
 
Purpose

SelectiveSenderName application allows you to set "Simple Display Name" attribute as a display name of the sender based on recipient's e-mail domain or on recipient's group membership. The application includes a program to define e-mail domains and groups that will be affected. It also provide an easy way to modify Simple Display Name value of any mail-enabled Active Directory object. As a result, you have a regular Exchange display name like usual but then have a different external one which everbody who you send emails to sees.

This application provides an ability to use different sender display names for internal and external e-mails.

Microsoft is supporting this feature in Exchange 2003 and in Exchange 2007 but not in Exchange 2010.

The application is a transport agent for Exchange server.

Current version: 1.0.0.1
This version can work on Exchange 2007 SP 1 with Update Rollup 4 or a later service pack/update rollup installed.
