  1. Windows Mail: All of my email is being sent via an outlook generated email address - WHY?


    After re-setting up my email accounts in Windows mail all of my emails are being sent out preceded with an outlook mail address. For example: *** Email address is removed for privacy ****** Email address is removed for privacy ***. How can I receive and send my email from this platform without piggybacking on outlook? Very frustrating.

    This is after updating to Windows 10



    Moved from: Outlook / Windows 10 / Office 365 Home

    :)

    Additional email addresses

    You are talking about two totally different things, contacts versus predictive text input in mail client.

    In most email clients, like Windows Mail, when you start typing an address in TO, CC or BCC fields, the client does not pick the addresses suggested from your contacts. Instead, it suggests addresses you have sent email earlier, or addresses of those who have sent email to you.

    If I now sent you an email, and you replied to it, next time when you write an email to someone whose address starts with K, my email address would be one of the suggested to you although I am not in your contacts.

    Outlook 2010 sent email not showing

    Hi there
    @slicendice

    In your account settings for the relevant account(s) have you set this option -- usually it's unchecked or empty


    Windows Mail: All of my email is being sent via an outlook generated email address - WHY? [​IMG]


    This needs to be set for every account.

    Also ensure the do not keep copies of sent mail is not checked.

    In addition in the general properties (outlook rather than the specific accounts) set the box to copy / keep sent mail.

    Cheers

    Office 2013 Mail Merge sending no emails

    I used to have no problems sending a Mail merge on Windows 7, however, trying to do one today on Windows 10, and it's simply not working.

    I've done everything the same, using an excel document as the data source, and that works fine. When I select Finish & Merge -> Send Email Documents and then OK, Word makes it appear it worked (all the dynamic values change to those of the contacts as it cycles through sending each email), but that's it. Not one email is sent; nothing in my sent items and nothing shows that any of those contacts have been email on our exchange or email archive software.

    I've seen that people suggest that Outlook is my default app (it is). Double checked the registry key as well Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\Mail\(Default) has the value Microsoft Outlook.

    I've literally done nothing different from when doing this on Windows 7; seems that the searches seem to suggest that it's a common problem as well, but everyone seems to say they had a problem and disappears from their support request (and most answer tell you to check the above registry key).
