IDEA: Switch aliases in Outlook Express accounts
« on: July 31, 2007, 01:15:49 PM »
There are times I need to change my Name and email address in the Account settings so once sent, it can show different info.
E.g. My default email info is: John Smith Director <director@notrealemail.com>
It would be great if I could have a shortcut key so when enabled, my email info would change to: John Smith Sales <sales@notrealemail.com> and then once done, I can press another key-combo and it changes to default.

Has anyone written a script to do this or am I "doomed" to have to change it manually everytime I want to send as from someone else?
Thanks

here's the program - IdenSwitch v1.01  :)
This utility allows you to instantly open Outlook Express with the desired identity, without opening Outlook Express at first.
It provides 2 methods to do that:

   1. You can simply select the desired identity from the main window of IdenSwitch, and then click the 'Switch' button.
   2. You can create special shortcuts on your desktop that will instantly open Outlook Express with the desired identity.

Notice: From some reason, IdenSwitch bypasses the poor security system of Outlook Express Identities. So even if your identities are protected by password, you won't be asked for a password when you switch to them through IdenSwitch utility.
