Thanks, that was very helpful.
I set this:
But my outbound email from SurgeWeb still used a From of
firstname.lastname@example.org, rather than email@example.com. Which is interesting, because the email composition window in SurgeWeb did show “From:
firstname.lastname@example.org”. Reply to was correct with
Any ideas what’s going on there?

Subject: Re: [SurgeMail List] How is _user.dat used
yes you can edit the surgeweb _user.dat as needed. There are however two "correct" locations for the file:
1) The _user.dat is actually actively used from the user's surgeweb working folder (find using "tellmail swpath
firstname.lastname@example.org"), but that is really a cached version.
2) Whenever the one in surgeweb/work is changed it is also uploaded to the mdir/xfile folder (find using "tellmail path
email@example.com") - note this is a subdirectory of the mdir folder you were looking
Mirrorring gets applied at the mdir/xfile level. At the point of "login to surgeweb" it will check mdir/xfile and if that one is newer than the surgeweb/work folder overwrite
the one in the surgeweb/work folder with the one from mdir/xfile.
You can edit in either location, but beware that someone actively logged in to surgeweb can mean the one mdir/xfile gets overwritten, and that mirrorring can cause the file
in surgeweb/work to get overwritten.

I've created a _user.dat file in the customer's mdir directory with two options, but SurgeWeb doesn't seem to use it.
Do I have to turn any other knobs to leverage the settings in that file? Or did I place it in the wrong directory?
