Introduction

By default the email From address in BrightWork is either specified by the user (in the case of BrightWork Reporter scheduled emails), or by the default Outgoing email From address in SharePoint Central Administration (in the case of Project Requests). However, a site collection 'Site Option' can be set to override the email From address with a specified email address for BrightWork Reporter emails, BrightWork Reporter scheduled emails, and Project Requests.

Steps for Setting the Email From Address Override

Option 1: Using SharePoint Designer

  1. In SharePoint Designer open the root of the site collection.
  2. Select the Site Options action from the ribbon.
  3. Select Add.
  4. Set the Name field to: vti_bw_overridefromemail_address
  5. Set the Value field to the desired From email address.
  6. Save the new Site Option.

Option 2: Using a SharePoint Management Shell cmdlet

  1. On the SharePoint server right-click on the SharePoint Management Shell and select Run as Administrator.
  2. Enter a command using the following format to set the From email address override value for the site collection: Set-BWFromEmailOverride <Target Site Collection> -FromEmailAddress "<From Email Address>"
  3. For example: Set-BWFromEmailOverride https://myserver/sites/mysitecollection -FromEmailAddress "[email protected]"

  4. To see if there is an existing From email address override value for a site collection: Get-BWFromEmailOverride <Target Site Collection>
  5. For example: Get-BWFromEmailOverride https://myserver/sites/mysitecollection

  6. To clear the From email address override value for a site collection: Set-BWFromEmailOverride <Target Site Collection> -FromEmailAddress ""
