How to configure Outlook to use two email accounts on Exchange?

Hello:
My exchange server can receive emails for multiple email accounts.  Right now, user can receive emails from , for instance, abc.com and xyz.com.
How do I configure Outlook to give the user the ability to choose which account to use when sending out emails?

Thanks

You will have to create two profiles, one for each account, and set it up in to prompt which profile to use.

If you enable the 'From' button. You can type in the account that it comes from? As long as that user has the email address associated with their account.

Thanks Guys.
Kieran's suggesion is right on target.

However, I wonder if there is way to make Outlook automatically reply emails by using the received address.
For instance, I received a message by using my user@abc.com, Is there a way when I hit reply, Outlook automactically use my abc.com email address instead of me choosing which email account to use?

Thanks

No, then only way that is going to happen is if you receive the mail through two different accounts, ie., one for exchange and one for POP3.

You could do this within your setup, but i don't recommend it - take the secondary email address off the user account, and create a new account just for it, configure outlook to download mail from that account using POP3 - now, it will reply from the right address.  The downsides here are that OWA isn't going to work, and you are now Outlook dependant.
