Mutliple Outlook Email Addresses

I have a client using Microsoft Outlook 2003 and Exchange Server 2003.  They host multiple email domains on the server.

As an example, their reply address is client@domain1.com.  This would represent their main email domain.  They also have a few other lesser used email domains with corresponding email addresses - client@domain2.com and client@domain3.com.

While they can receive email for all three domains, the reply (or from) address will always display their default reply address.

How can they specify the "from" address to be client@domain3.com instead of the default?  If possible, it needs to be done at the client level and not the server.  I have already tried displaying the "from" field under "options" in Outlook but the client is telling me that it doesn't work.

Any ideas out there?

ok... whats the exact error you're getting from the client?
Is it an "access denied" type error
This is possible and we do it ourselves.

I can explain to you if i'm sure that this is the case.

The "accounts" button works fine if you have multiple accounts like Exchange and POP3.

The problem I'm trying to solve is getting the "from" field to match one of the non-default SMTP email addresses in Exchange.

I don't believe there is an error message - the client is telling me that all the outbound emails look like the default reply address.

IvaSoft,

This is a good solution to the problem.  I'm surprised that there is no native support for this feature by Microsoft.
