Property Value

Type: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.AddressEntry


In a session where multiple accounts are defined in the profile, you can set this property to specify the account from which to send a mail item. Set this property to the AddressEntry object of the user that is represented by the CurrentUser property of a specific account.

If you set the Sender property to an AddressEntry that does not have permissions to send messages on that account, Outlook will raise an error.
