Domain admins can send mail as any user

Should domain admins be able to send an email "from" any user in the domain?  This seems to be the case with our exchange 2003 box.  I am a domain admin and can send email out like it cam e from any user, this is not the send on behalf of option.  Thanks

that is not by default.
check the permissions for the domain admin group
it must have been assigned send as permissions in exchange
it might be tied to using EXMERGE in case they needed to do backups.
This is not default behaviour, in fact, domain admins are denied this right and the right to mailbox access by default.

There will be a security permission set for the Domain Admins group, possibly at the store level, which you will need to invesigate. Alternatively, if that isn't the case, the domain admins group will be a member of another group which subsequently has the necessary permissions.
