My customer have a fresh install ou Win2003 SBS + 10 CALS . it's an architectural agency .
They manage only one e-mail adress . .
The goal is that every users can send mails to externals contacts and the FROM field have to be the same
e-mail adress for all of us.

Because when i try to put in heach user property the smtp adress, i'v got a popup saying this smtp adress his already
in use.

One of the user receive the mail on and dispatch the mail to the relevant users.( it' s ok )

So how can i set exhange 2003 in order to have all the users with same mail in outgoing message ?

Thanks a lot .
It was working with Echange 5.5

Oy... they don't really need Exchange for this... why don't they just stick with Wanadoo's webmail?

Sorry, that's rather rude of me... but I just don't understand how people think sometimes.

The way to do this with Exchange 2003 is to use a Public Folder as a group mailbox.  You'll find a decent "how-to" here:

FYI, this customer sounds like a great candidate for Microsoft CRM for Small Business... that's what should really be used to create the kind of structure they probably are looking for.

Did you try this?

Give each user their own email address in exchange server.
Set up the Reply To and From in Outlook as the common smtp address?

You can't do this in Outlook as far i know because it takes the parameters of exchange...
And the users have no personal adress e-mail ..there is only ONE adress e-mail for the group.
