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 test@example1.com to your customer who uses joe@bloggs.com, once you have sent the message via your AuthSMTP account the from address would automatically be re-written so that the from address is test@example2.com, your customer would see that the message has come from test@example2.com and not the original email address of test@example1.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
