Sending from two different Internet addresses with common username

I want to configure Exchange 2003 to accept email for two internet domains. I know how to do this by adding another domain to the default recipient policy. I also want the users to be able to send email from either domain by changing the address in the "from" field.
I have set this up before by creating an additional user for each account and changing the default email address for the dummy user and then setting "Send as" and "Send on behalf of" permissions.
I have lost my notes and cannot find the knowledgebase article at microsoft.com - I think that it has been taken off.
Can someone point me in the right direction on either where to find the article that I refer to or maybe suggest a better solution if one is now available (It was a while ago I configured this before)
I don't want o use a third-party tool like ivasoft choosefrom.

To sum up I need to configure exchange for a user to send email from user@domain1.com or user@domain2.com by using the from field.

Send as is simply an option on the security tab of the user account. If you don't the security tab then you need to close the properties of the user account, then in ADUC choose View, Advanced Features. The security tab will then be there.

It cannot be done with a single account, so it has to be multiple accounts and the send as permission.
See my article on the process here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/twodomainsoneuser.asp

Thanks Simon - that's the process that I was after but I remember that the "Send as" and "Send on behalf of" process was quite difficult and it is that KB article that I needed to find.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

The send as process was difficult?
What is difficult about enabling a box?
The only issues come if your account is a domain administrator, and the permission will be removed.

OK - well if that's all there is to it then fine but I distinctly remember following a knowledgebase article that send me deep into AD checking all sorts of permissions to make this work. Maybe that's why the article was taken down ?

Strangely - and this has nothong to do with this question - I spotted your address in your profile. My cousin lives in your street - No 11.

No 11? Thats round the corner from me. (Simon phones the estate agent and shouts I must move now) :-)

The only time permissions start causing a problem is if the account is a domain admin. Otherwise it is as simple as enable an option and wait a while for the Exchange permissions cache to flush.

LOL - Don't worry I'm not a stalker - and I don't live close by. "=o)
I'll have a fiddle with the settings. Thanks for the pointers. Will report back if I get in to trouble.

I think that the KB I was referring to was 327000 which is no longer available. However it is still published in German.

Rather strange.
But from your comment you seem to imply  that the issue is resved from a check box - Is this done using AD or ESM ? Can you point me in the right direction as I fear I am over complicating this.
Thanks
