Hi Experts,

This is an 03 SBS exchange enviroment.

Currently users have multiple email addresses for each of exchange inboxes.  
For example:  
Primary:  user@mycompany.com
secondary: info@mycompany.com

One user in particular, needs to be able to send from their non-primary SMTP address everynow and then.   Is there a way to specify the sending email address in Outlook?  I know that I can just make a new mailbox in exchange and share, but it would seem logical in this instance that it could be done.

That is not going to work as your outlook client uses the MAPI protocol, not SMTP to connect to the exchange server.

There is a POP3 'trick' with exchange to do the alternate from address - but it is not very elegant.

The 3rd party app or shared mailbox with SendAs permissions are really the only goers...

I guess your limited to having to create additional user/mailboxes to accomplish this.

Thanks for the help
