Change primary email address on SBS exchange 2003 using script

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have a customer who has several email addresses and needs to change which email address is the primary when sending out email. He may need to do this several times a day. I understand from searching the net this is not possible with Outlook.

My question is it possible to have a script change the primary address in Active Directory. Ideally this script should be able to be run on the workstation, but its not a problem to run it on the server since he has admin access to server (very small company). He wants the all the email in one inbox so setting up separate accounts as suggested elsewhere is not an option.

I thought some powershell script my be possible.
