You can blank out the name by going through tools-services-internet email.  This is a simple way to do it but it is not truly anonymous.  There are other ways floating around the internet but I have never really looked into them.

i wanted to send email to someone and either be anonymous or use the department name as the sender.  i really wanted to send it anonymously but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that in Outlook.

In the Internet mail service you could set the fields in the service to show any name & e-mail address you want on outbound mail.

In the Exchange Server you could probably setup another mailbox to use for sending so as to not reveal your exact identity.
