We have Exchange 2003 (HMC3.5).
We have customers with more than one E-Mail Address and/or Mailboxes. With outlook they can choose which e-mail address is used as from when creating an new e-mail. On webmali (OWA) I cannot find the fiels FROM when sending a new e-mail.
Is there a possibility to use this feature also on Webmail like Outlook.

As far as I know OWA doesn't support the use of FROM field. However it can be achieved using 3rd party product.

OWA does not support it natively so you will have to use a 3rd party tool

Unfortunately, chaps, the link should be this:

:-(

You might try this as an alternative, if you really need this feature:

it is rather strange that this was not included.

I think it's because OWA 2003 uses WebDAV to send the messages, and WebDAV can only send from the primary SMTP address.  The ChoosefromOWA product seemed (as far as I can tell) to add some kind of marker to the message (depending on the chosen from address), which was then looked for by an Event Sink running on the server (checking outgoing messages) and doing the modification there.  MS haven't exactly made it easy.
