    Okay.. here's the situation: We have an outside vendor who sent an email to one of our employees. Then, that employee forwarded that email on to a couple of other employees and proceeded to correspond with them, unknowingly including the outside vendor in each email.

    I can see how he got included in the forwarded correspondences.. there's a display name that is a simple ":" which looks pretty nondescript in between legitimate display names. If you right click on it.. it's his.

    But, I don't understand how he got his email to follow along with the original forward. I mean, even if he BCC'd himself it would fall off in a forwarded message wouldn't it? (at least it did when I attempted it)

    BTW I believe we're all using Outlook 2003 with HTML formatted messages.

    I'm stumped.

    I can't figure out how he did it.

    Not sure how he did it, but I'll say this: I don't think I'd be working with him. That's pretty strange and arguably unethical. If his whole address or name showed up as a display I may feel differently, but I think I'd definitely drop that guy from the vendor list unless he's vital to your success.

    Perhaps the "Send replies to" field? Not sure if that works for forwards, shouldnt, but it might. It basically has any correspondence to the email sent to the email addresses specified as well
