Send on behalf of.

I am trying to figure out how i can setup Outlook so one of the users i support can send emails with another user's email account.
I have tried to give the "send on behalf of" right in the AD Users mmc properties and also gave delegate rights on the mailbox inside Outlook (right to create items) but the emails are then received on the form "sender colleague1 on behalf of colleague2". Thats the "on behalf of" who doesn't fit right.
As an administrator i have got that freaking power to send emails from anyone in the address book and people receiving emails can really believe then than someone else than me sent it.
I have done the following and it deosn't seem to work.
1. Create a new mailbox or group object in Active Directory Users and Computers with the appropriate domain name.
2. Go to the View menu and select Advanced Features.
3. Under Users, right-click the mailbox or group object and select Properties.
4. Under Security -> Advanced, click Add and type the username that you want to grant Send As permissions to.
5. Click Check Names to make sure you have the name right and then click OK.
6. In the Permission Entry dialog, select "This object only" in the "Apply to" dropdown, and then check "Allow" under "Send As" in the Permissions list. Make sure no other permissions are being explicitly granted.
7. Click OK to close all the dialogs.

How about domain users? Is such a thing possible?

I figured it out.  The security was cached.  I updated the RUS and restart the service.  That was it.  Then the above steps worked.

It's not ideal, but I usually just set the user up with a second Outlook profile, one to open each mailbox.  Then they can send-as either by opening the other profile.  It's fine for a couple of users every now and then, but I'd be interested in hearing if there's a better way of doing this...
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
