I have set up a second account on my exchange server so a user can send and email out form another Domain using the From box witht he relavent permissions. The problem is every time you do this the email that sent comes up as email from "original user" on Behalf of "seconduser" is there a way to stop this as I just want it to display the "seconduser" not the first one.

You have granted the wrong permissions.
You should have granted Send As, not Send on Behalf of.

Remove the Send on Behalf of, then choose View, Advanced Features in ADUC. That will enable the Security tab. On that tab you will find the Send As permission. Grant the user that permission instead.

It will not be live immediately, Exchange caches permissions, so expect it to be a couple of hours before it is live.

Yeah Send as permission on the mailbox is the best thing to do and after doing so you can restart the information store service and the permission will get in effect.

Restart the information store will flush the cache. However it will also kick all of your users out of Outlook and OWA, which may not be a desirable action.
