How to change the "FROM" address to one of my alias e-mails

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 "my_name@companyA.com" or 'my_name@companyB.com" .

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 http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Email_Groupware/Exchange_Server/Q_20990769.html

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 http://www.ivasoft.biz/choosefrom.shtml although it's fairly expensive for a single license.
