Hi All

I have a challange with a client.  This client is using SBS 2003 with Office 2003 (outlook2003 and exchange 2003)  The challange,  The user has two email accounts.  One for general and one for private use.  He doesn't read teh general but has an assistant check it through OWA and forward him any important messages.  He would like to be able to respont to the message but wants the response to look like it is comming from his general mail box insteas of his private mailbox.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

Give him the 'SEND AS' behalf of permission on this general mailobox

Log onto the server running Exchange.
Run Active Directory Users and Computers.
Under the "View" menu ensure that "Advanced Features" is ticked.
Find the user's account that you want to be able to send as, and open up the account properties.
Select the "Security" tab.
Click [Add ...] (under "Group or user names") and add the user (users or group) that is to be granted permission to send-as this account.
For each account added, highlight the account under "Group or user names" and in the "Permissions for ..." window grant the account "Send As" permission.
Click [OK] to close the account properties dialog.

(you need to be exchnage admin to do this)

Hi KCTS, when Send as is used, the message says Mr. X on behalf of mailbox Y!

If you want to achieve what this question asks, the thing that's worked for me is what I have shown above.

Hope this helps,

No it does not - That is 'Send on behalf of', with 'Send as' is quite different as does not have the 'on belhalf of tag' or any other way of deermining that the mail is from a different user.

Sorry. Ill type that again..
'SEND AS' is not the same as 'SEND ON BEHALF OF"

The 'SEND AS' permission does not add the tag 'on behalf of' or any other means for thr recipent to determine that the message was actually sent from a different account.

'SEND AS' can only be granted by the Exchange Admin.

Hope thats a little more clear.
