All of my users use Outlook 2003 and they all have an individual mailbox on an Exchange 2003 server.  We have a distribution list that goes to multiple people.

The sales department wants to be able to send out a newsletter, from their Outlook, but have it come from  Of course I could create a real user account and real mailbox but that's not what I want to do.

I'd much rather find a simpler way for to send mail as

    Go to ADUC (dsa.msc) on Exchange server --> Click View --> Advanced.
    Now goto Distribution Group Properties ( --> Security tab --> Add user and grant him the 'Send As' right.
    Wait for 2 hours ideally and then let user type a new mail, goto View --> From .... and in FROM type the email address, he/she should now be able to send as DG

    Worked like a charm, thanks!  In "From" in Outlook 2003 is under Tools -> Options or the Options dropdown from the email bar in a new message!

    Much thanks!
