Sending mail from a non-existing mailbox or alias in Outlook 2003

All of my users use Outlook 2003 and they all have an individual mailbox on an Exchange 2003 server.  We have a sales@visionpro.com 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 sales@visionpro.com.  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 user@visionpro.com to send mail as sales@visionpro.com.

Thanks!

Hi,
Go to ADUC (dsa.msc) on Exchange server --> Click View --> Advanced.
Now goto Distribution Group Properties (sales@visionpro.com) --> 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 sales@visionpro.com email address, he/she should now be able to send as DG
Let me know
Thanks

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!
