we are running windows 2k3, with exchange 2007.
internally a user can send emails 'on behalf of' others and have the 'user1 on behalf of user2' show up as the sender which is all dandy. however when the email goes externally it doesnt contain the 'on behalf of'.. is this by design?

When you email internet domains, I believe those are "Remote domains" as you are not authoritative for them.
