Is there a way to 'Send on Behalf' of a contact in Exchange?

A user(let's call this User A) wants to be able to 'send on behalf' of another user (User B) that is listed as a contact in Exchange.  The other user(User B) does not have an email address in the same domain as user A.  In other words if I haven't explained this properly, User B is in a different physical location using a totally separate email system(POP3).  They have it set up at the other office for User A to be able to 'send on behalf of User B.  User A also has a POP3 email address at that office.   However when User A is physically located at the corporate office, he wants to be able to do the same thing.  I know with exchange email accounts in our domain, I'm able to go into the 'Delegate' tab of Outlook -->Tools --> Options and set up another user with permission to 'send on my behalf'.  However I don't know if there's a way to do this with an Exchange Contact?  I've thought about creating a Exchange account for User B in our domain, but since she's already in there as a contact, it won't let me duplicate.  I'd have to change the name.  Hope all of this makes sense.

Any ideas?

Thanks as always for your time and help.

As the domain is on a different then it can't be done.
That would be relaying and isn't allowed by Exchange.

The only way that you could do this is to use Outlook Express and then configure a different address in the account setup.
