Make sure you have Send on Behalf Permission -

Open the user goto the Exchange General Tab - Then Delivery Options and you will see Send on Behalf and just add your name.

My mind is blank right now, but in Outlook add the Mail From: put that person's name in there and send the e-mail. Otherwise I create a new profile with that other e-mail as the default and then you will "be that person" and be able to send.

There's another way to acheive this: In your email account, click Advanced and add the mailboxes you want to open. Now, when composing a mail, click the Account button and choose the sender.

full access to mailboxes (at an AD level, i'm assuming?) does not specifically grant the send-as right. you must specifically add send-as. However, if you are a member of certain groups, such as domain admins, this change will not stick. in addition to the article posted by wtstadd, please see here:
