I need to customize the display name of a from address in a mail reply to scenario in Microsoft Active Directory.

Lets say when a member of a group is replying to the email then the display name of the from address should look like "<somebody> on behalf of <group_name>@blah.com" to the end recipient. In the above example I would like to customize the <group_name> globally as well as individually.

Please provide the possible solutions.

You cannot use "Send on behalf" for a distribution group. Instead you would have to use a (resource) mailbox. Alternatively you could use "Send as" but then the real sender would not be visible to the recipient, only the group name as sender.

What do you mean by " I would like to customize the <group_name> globally as well as individually"?

Just wondering if it can be globally configured if not at least individually.
