What is an Email Address Re-write?
The email address re-write is a function that will allow you to send emails from your email program, application or device using a specific email address and then have the from address re-written automatically to another email address by AuthSMTP once you have sent the message.
Here is a diagram that explains how the service would re-write your from email address:
You would begin by sending an email from email@example.com to your customer who uses firstname.lastname@example.org, once you have sent the message via your AuthSMTP account the from address would automatically be re-written so that the from address is email@example.com, your customer would see that the message has come from firstname.lastname@example.org and not the original email address of email@example.com.
- It will not have any effect on the To address or the Reply-To address, it will only change the Header From address
- Both the original from address and the re-write address have to be validated on your account
- The re-write function is not compatible with DKIM message signing
- This function should not be used for re-writing large amounts of email such as bulk mailing lists
