Send As Public Folder - Exchange 2003

Hi all,


My Server is Exchange 2000 SP3.

We have public folders and I want to give permission for Clients to send as the public folder's email address.  

Have setup user as owner of folder. Given send as rights. Unhide the address of PF from GAL.

All fine.

Now when I reply to an email in a Public Folder, it sends it with my email address as opposed to the public folders email address. I have to enable the FROM field and select the PF email address. Only then will it go out as the the PF email address.

What I'm asking is - "Is there an easy way to reply to messages in the PF without having to set the FROM field every time"

I know of 3rd Party products such as Lucatec Mask or Ivasoft, but wondering if I can do it without 3rd party products. Cost is an issue.

All Help appreciated

Thanks

Sat

Short answer is No.
Outlook is a biased to your user account.

If you are sending more email out via the public folder than a mailbox, then convert the public folder to a mailbox and configure this new mailbox as the primary mailbox, and your own mailbox as an additional mailbox.

Simon,

Ok - that is not the answer I wanted to hear, but it is probably the right answer. Just a further quick question

Is it not possible to have a custom form which fills in the FROM address automatically? And if so is there a way to attach it to a folder so when we reply from that folder it automatically uses that form?

We can't always provide the answers that people want to hear. Exchange doesn't hide many secrets away.

I don't think that a custom form will work correctly. When you hit reply, it will use the default reply form from the Outlook forms library.

With the correct skills you could probably recreate the functionality of the Ivasoft, but without them I wouldn't know where to start.
