Configuring impersonal email?

» close window

The Question is:

We are looking for a way to strip the personal name from users e-mail when they
 send to an address outside our VMSCluster machines. We are using Multinet IP
 services. Thier helpline said that they can not do anything as it is
 considered to be a MUA settin
g. Is there way we can selectively do this? Or do we have to resort to setting
 a policy?

The Answer is :

  There is no supported interface nor supported mechanism for
  conditionally removing the personal name from OpenVMS mail,
  nor from TCP/IP Services SMTP.
  This would have to be implemented by site policy, or by
  modifications to the OpenVMS mail utility or to the local
  SMTP transport, or some similar approach.
  As for capabilities and mechanisms available within MultiNet
  SMTP, please contact MultiNet support.
