If you use Outlook or Exchange, there is no way of 'spoofing' the From field.
The moment the message hits a mail server, the From header is added and then additional headers are added as it passes through other mail servers. This shows the route the message took and who the sender was, and there is no way of preventing this.

As a workaround, why not set up some anonymous user account which is not tied to someone, then send email as that?

Alternatively, you CAN simply edit a POP3/IMAP account in Outlook and change the 'Sender Name' field to some other value - e.g. Undisclosed Recipients. However, it isn't an anonymous message as other headers and tracking information is added.
