I have an exchange 2003 sp2 server running and I have my gmail account forwarding to my exchange and exchange synced up with my phone. However with my phone or my laptop synced with exchange, when I send mail from my exchange email account I would like people that receive the mail to see my gmail.com account instead of my exchange email so they can reply to my gmail account incase it goes down and also because the hostname for my exchange account is not as memorable as gmail. Is this possible?

Thats hardly the same thing, plus if anyone replies to the messages they will go to the exchange box and not his Gmail account. Hes looking for something to do it on the server, not an outlook client.... I think.

It is temporary, and a pain - but it is better than no alternatives at all.

If this is the case, why use Exchange....?

1) You want people to see your Gmail address, not your domain address used on Exchange
2) Exchange is receiving mail from Gmail and then mail is getting picked off the Exchange server (presumably) using Outlook.....

Why not cut out the middle man and just use Outlook to collect mail from Gmail......

If it is necessary to have the Exchange box....other users, corporate account/domain name and so on, then you can configure outlook to have an Exchange account as well as a Pop/IMAP account to pick up your mail from Gmail.  

You can then get outlook to ask you which account you would like to send mail from by adding a "From" field in the composer.... (see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_23248760.html)

I've rigged it so that the default reply-to is my gmail account, that should catch most of it..
