    everything that i have researched says no.  outlook doesnt even know about those other email addresses until you get into the properties of a member on the global address list.

    Depends on your your outgoing mail server's rules, but probably.
    Setup another account for the alias, but You un-tick the ‘Include this account when receiving mail or synchronizing’ box.
    Now setup Outlook to show the 'from' field in your outgoing email pane and you should be able to choose the alias account.
