Send e-mail from alternate e-mail address

Hi all,

I have a user account that has two e-mail addresses assigned to it:  
me@domain1.com
me@domain2.com
By assigned, I mean in Active Directory Users and Computers, on the "E-mail Addresses" tab, i have me@domain1.com as the primary (bold) SMTP address and then me@domain2.com as another SMTP address.

Outlook is accepting messages in from both e-mail accounts, but this user is needing to compose new and reply to messages from one account or the other.

When I go to compose a new message, I chose from the "Options" drop down the "From" field.  I put in my second e-mail address me@domain2.com and then try to send a test message.  Immediately I receive back this dreaded message:
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      test
      Sent:      04/03/2009 10:23 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      whoiamsendingto@theirdomain.com on 04/03/2009 10:23 AM
            You do not have permission to send to this recipient.  For assistance, contact your system administrator.

I thought I would try it on another computer, and composing the same message yields the same results.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Your account may not support sendas permissions for the correct user.

Check the AD and Email permissions for both.

I hope this helps !

Thanks for the links.  Both e-mail addresses belong to the same account.  I don't think I can set sendas permissions for myself?
