In that case, a simple way would be to change your Account Display Name to both of your names.  When the user receives it, it would show whatever youve entered (in this case, both your names).  Its not an automated solution, but it would work.

They only need for the email to go out with both of their names in certain situations.  If I change the display name it will change for everytime the email goes out.  Correct?

Correct - what i mean is in that specific case, change it, let them send, and then change it back.

If you have the right to send mail as the other user, you can use the "From" field in a message you're composing to enter both names.  In a new message, click "View" and "From Field", as long as your co-worker has granted you the right to send on his behalf this will do the trick!

Another option is to create a distribution list with your 2 addresses in it.  You can create a list in the GAL, assign "send as" permissions to yourself and your co-worker.  Then, when you send out the messages in question you can use the "From" field to input the distribution list, and any replys will go to that list and in turn be recieved by both of you.  I have sucessfully sent a message (to myself) using this method and if came from the distribution list, the individual addresses do not show.  The only catch is that it needs to be set up on the exchange server.
