FROM Field when sending an email in OWA

Can I turn on the from field when sending an email through the web based outlook (OWA) program?

Another thing... I have three email addresses under one mailbox in exhange.  I have one folder for each email address under my inbox, and a rule that sorts emails received to the proper location.  When I reply to one, I always have to click 'from' or enter my email address in the from field.  Is there any way to have those three email addresses in a drop down list instead of clicking the 'from' button?  I will hire a programmer if this is possible, Ijust need to know the right questions to ask...

Your OWA question - no. OWA doesn't support the use of alternative accounts and the From Field.

As for your second question, you might want to look at choose from: http://www.ivasoft.biz/choosefrom.shtml

That application has to be installed on the server, right?  If so, I cna't use it - I am on a shared exchange hosting program (mailstreet.com).

If you are on a hosted installation then you are heavily restricted - in fact I would probably say that it isn't possible, even with an Outlook form.
