With only 1 ISP internet account, can 4 user share it on exchange 2003 showing 1 common address

I have setup Exchange 2003 using MS SBS. I'm able to receive mail from my ISP (only 1 mail account) using  POP3 and forward to a recipient mailbox. There are 4 users each is able to sent and receive from exchange. When they sent external mail example: 13@yahoo.com the recipent mail will show From: user1@cina.local (this is actuall the internal mail address in the excahange.  

This there a way to configure the exchange so that when a mail is sent from internal to external the receiver see a common vaild internet address by the ISP?

Example:

user1@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show cina@singnet.com
user2@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show cina@singnet.com
user3@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show cina@singnet.com

So when they reply it's the correct email address.

If you are asking if this can be done from Exchange, the answer is yes.  You can use recipient policies to configure an email address to be assigned to users based on a filter rule.  It's really easy to do. One thing to keep in mind is that the primary SMTP address is the sender address.

Here is an article about working with recipient policies:

Buy using the above method you all only get the domain address with different alias.

Example:

user1@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show user1@singnet.com
user2@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show user2@singnet.com
user3@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show user3@singnet.com


not what I really want. What I need is the alias should be the same

Example:

user1@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show      cina@singnet.com
user2@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show      cina@singnet.com
user3@cina.local  mail to 123@yahoo.com, the receiver will show      cina@singnet.com


user1@cina.local   are local domain address

cina@singnet.com   is a ISP email address which I only have 1.

Oh, are you trying to have every mailbox with have the same primary SMTP address?  If so, you'll need to write an event sink or use a perimeter application like Sendmail that can do this very easily.
