We have a situation where we are trading under 2 different company names, depending on who is calling in for support.
I am looking for an easy way for the users to choose which email address should be sent out.
I am using outlook XP and Exchange 2000
Currently the user accounts have various email addresses attached
ie john@company1.com  & john@company2.com
If I set the default to john@company1.com and then set the reply to address or the From field to john@company2.com when the receiver opens the mail it always shows the default SMTP address and replies to that one.
Any ideas how this can be changed, as I dont want to have to make changes on the Exchange server on a per email basis!  Also would ideally like to avoid having a second mailbox for them to log in via

many thanks
John

Exchange cannot do this natively, so you will have to use a third party tool.
The usual one suggested on this site is: http://www.ivasoft.biz/choosefrom.shtml
Haven't used it, but there are plenty of good reports about it on this site.
