Cannot "Send As" another user.............

I am using exchange server 2003 and I have about 8 mailbox users. I want to be able to grant them "send as" permissions. I have followed all of Microsfts "how to" guides to set this up. I have setup the mailbox store with a group called MailBoxAcces in which all users are a member of and have "send as" permissions. In addition I have added this group as well as individual users (for testing purposes) to each users security tab (In Active Directory Users And Computers). I still get a message stating that the sender does not have permission to send an email as another user. If I turn "on behalf of" on it seems to work but I need the "send as" feature to work. I have been working on this for over a day now if anyone can help to point me in the right direction I would appreciate it greatly.

Make sure that on the mailbox store (in the Exchange System Manager), the everyone group doesn't have the Deny "send as" permissions. (this is a thing to look into anyhowes, if you didn't gave someone the deny send as permissions..)

The everyone group does not have "deny send as" checked however it also doesnt have "allow" checked either.

It doesn't need to have the allow, you only need to give the individual users the send as rights..
And you made sure that you gave the users the send As rights and there aren't any denies?? Normally admins would have denies on the send as and send on behalf, are these users members of the admins group??

The useres do have "send as" permissions" and yes they are members of the admins group. They are also members of Domain Admins and Enterprise Admins which I know are denied these permissions by default. However I have this setup in another location and the users are also members of Admins, domain admins, and enterprise admins and "send as" works fine.

Hi,

Starnge that it works fine for the other location, normally, deny overrules Allow permissions. I would go to the Mailbox Store and make sure that the Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins and Administrator groups and accounts don't have the Deny Send as permissions. Do think that this is your problem. If not, i'm lost...

Ok I will try but should I remove these 3 groups (Admins, Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins)? The reason I say that is because the Full Mailbox Control Deny and Allow boxes are greyed out.

Hi,

You only need to make sure that rights aren't propagated from above (then they are greyed out). After that, only make sure to give the admins the Allow Send as rights.. (Maybe even the receive as).
