I'm trying to send on behalf of a new email account I have created. On the security tab on the user account that I want to send from I have full control of the mailbox and on the Exchange General tab>Delivery options I have Grant Send on Behalf Permissions.

I logged on to the domain as the user and in Outlook gave myself (and another user) owner permissions on the mailbox and on the Inbox.

When I finally log back on to the domain as me and open Outlook an din the From...field I enter the new email address of the account and try to send myself the email I get the error message:

You do not have the permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user.

I also removed and re-created the profile of the new user in Outlook but still get the same error.
Thanks!!!

Go to the Exchange Advanced tab | Click Mailbox Rights and add yourself there.

That function rarely works. A workaround is to add this account to your account (Tools->Email accounts. Choose account->Edit->More settings, Advanced tab, add the account). Now when creating a new email message you can select the account you want to send from.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
