Send As a Distribution List in Exchange 2003

We have a distribution list setup called foo@domain.com.

Some users want to send mail out AS that user so that it appears to be from foo@domain.com (not Joe Smith on behalf of foo@domain.com)

How do I set this up in Exchange (I'm assuming it just won't work without configuration somewhere).

Help!? I need to have this in place tomorrow morning.  THANK YOU

One way to do it is to go to Active directory then click on View the select Advanced Features. That will give you a security tab when viewing objects and OUs.

Go to the distribution group properties and click on the security tab and add the group of users that you want to be able to send and give them Send As rights

Then when sending an email from the client, add the From field to the email and select Foo@domain.com

thanks for the quick reply - is that the ONLY right I should add?  When I go to that tab and add a user, it prepopulates some permissions already.  Should I clear those or just add the 'send as' right?

No, that should do it.

Actually I just tested adding a user to the Distribution group and they were able to send to.
