You just need to add the From button. To do that, pop out the message window - go to Options - there you'll see Themes Group, Show Fields Group, Tracking Group, More Options Group. In the Show Fields group, select From.

Hi Angela,
Do you mean there is no From button in the email you compose? I haven't encountered such a problem. Sorry can't help for that.
