Using exchange server 5.5 and outlook 2003, how do I change the FROM E-MAIL Address to one of my aliases?  I work for several companes under one umbrella and depending on which e-mail I reply to, I want the from address to be "" or '" .

Each time I try to change it, exchange server or outlook switches it back to my default smtp address...

Any suggestions?

    I tried the same thing with Outlook 2k3 and Exchange 2k3 and had the same problem.  I have a catch-all domain and everything is sent to my primary e-mail address; I wanted to reply using the same address.
    I even asked about it at

    I never found a free solution to this, for now, I just use an SMTP connection to send as someone else, just make sure exchange allows it.

    If you want a pay solution, look at although it's fairly expensive for a single license.
