I have used the following article to set permissons for Send As to allow certain users the ability to send on behalf of a distribution group.

However, when I open Outlook (2003/07) I can't find how to specify that the email will come from that account. I saw the following image from a similar post here on EE which has an image of the users outlook were there is clearly a 'From' box;

How can I do this? Its driving me nuts!

To show the From field, when in your message, click on View -> From Field.

Hope that helps.

Compose a new message, click on the View menu, and select the From: item. If you have "smart menus" enabled you may need to wait a few seconds after dropping down the View menu in order to see the From: item if it's not already there.

If you are using Word as you email editor just expand the "OPTIONS" button at the tool bar
, and there you are.

if it is not showing you may need to disable word as the email editor in Tools, Options, Mail Format
