Format of Email Address


I have a question regarding this property. I am under the impression that the input string for this property must be in the order "John Smith"

Is it possible to have a 3 or 4 word name followed by an e-mail address, for example: "Great ABC Hospitals"

My initial testing would tell me no, is there a workaround??


The string should be formatted like this:
"Great ABC Hospitals "

You may set the FromName and FromAddress properties separately as well:

emailObject.FromName = "Great ABC Hospitals"
emailObject.FromAddress = "" — with or without angle brackets.


emailObject.From = "Great ABC Hospitals "
