Hi interchangers,

I wanted to let you all know about a new option that has been added to the
Order Routing function.

In the past (unless you've setup your own patch for this), all of the order
reports generated by Interchange originate with a from address which is
usually the-ic-user@hostname.domainname.com. While this is normally not a
big deal, some find it cosmetically imperfect. Especially for those who run
catalogs for multiple clients on one machine.

With the new from option, each route can appear to originate from an address
you can set, similar to the reply option.

To use this new option, you'll need to grab the latest Interchange from CVS.
(See http://developer.akopia.com/cgi-bin/ic/download.html for more info.)
Then just add the from option to your routes as below in catalog.cfg or a
new column in the route database:

# Main route must be last to make default
Route main        attach           0
Route main        credit_card      0
Route main        cybermode        ""
Route main        default          1
Route main        email            '__ORDERS_TO__'
Route main        encrypt          0
Route main        encrypt_program  '__ENCRYPTOR__'
Route main        errors_to        '__ORDERS_TO__'
Route main        increment        0
Route main        pgp_cc_key       ""
Route main        pgp_key          ""
Route main        receipt          etc/receipt.html
Route main        report           etc/report
Route main        supplant         1
Route main        individual_track orders
Route main        track            logs/tracking.asc
Route main        from             "Address Title <address@domain.com>"
