Changing the "From" field in Outlook 2003

We have an executive director that lives out of state.  She will send us documents (via email) that we are to send out to all of the members of her assoc.  When I set up the email, I change the the name under options username to her name w/my email address (so any incorrect email addresses come back to me) Under Internet email settings I change the name to reflect her name and have her email address underneath so replies go to her.  The problem is..when individuals receive her email (that we have sent out), her name is in the from field w/my email address next to it.  She wants all addresses to reflect her address but does not want any of the incorrect emails to come to her.  How do I do this?

Hope you understand this.  Thanks ahead of time for the help.

In your email account configuration with YOUR name and HER address, put HER address in the REPLY TO

If I'm understanding correctly it's impossible.  Using Outlook you cannot send a message out under a given address unless you are signed on with that account.  She can delegate access to you, but the messages will say they're from you on behalf of her.  Even if you could send as her, then there'd be no way for incorrect mails to come to you while other responses go to her.  

Cheers!

@venabili...my comment is a workaround, though bluedevilfan is on target if you want a complete clean response (in this case NOT).

Nope. The answer here is "There is no way to change the from field in the way he needs it". Reply to and From are different things and the idea is NOT to have the answer to her, but to look like sent by her.
