can mail merge send as a mail enabled publc folder

User here is trying to do a mail merge, and send as an e-mail address that is in fact a mail enabled public folder, not an e-mail account.

We have tried using profiles within outlook but when attempting to associate that profile with that e-mail address, it asks us for credentials we don't have since it is not an actual e-mail account.

We have also gotten close by within outlook selecting actions, new mail using, microsoft word, and putting the e-mail address (GTA) in the from field which it accepts. Upon doing a test merge, the e-mail came from the user's account, not the GTA e-mail address we told it to.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

You need to give the user "Send As" permissions to that public folder.

You can use the Public Folder Managment tool to modify the "Send As" Permission. Then use the "From" Field to specify the public folders address.

The user does have send as permissions, she can send to users individually from that e-mail address, its when she uses a mail merge that it doesnt want to work.

You could set up a second outlook profile and set up a pop3/smtp account that has that email address. As long as your exchange server will allow your local outlook client to use it as a relay server, you should be set.

It doesn't matter if it can receive messages, as long as the outbound works, you should be golden.
