Sending on behalf of another, with their name?

I have a user that opens up several additional email accounts in her Outlook 2003. What she wants is the following.

Her Outlook.

User A
User B
User C

User A is her email box, works normally. When she wants to send from User B or C, her User A name appears on the emails. Is there a way from her Outlook to send emails that look like they each came form the users inbox, so User A emails say User A, User B emails say from User B.

She tried the From field but this rejected the email back to her.

I did setup her as a Send on Behalf of rights in AD.

Am I missing something or is this just not possible unless you setup a separate Outlook Profile for User B and C.

When you compose a message there should be an "accounts" drop down near the send button allowing her to choose which account to send from.

At that point the From would be defined under Tools > Email accounts
and selecting each account and filling out the name.

Thanks! That seemed to work.
