"Simple" question everybody:
I've upgraded from POP3-mailboxes shared by 3 people, to an SBS 2008 server with Exchange 2007 running. Email is coming and going, all looks good.
Except they don't have the ability to choose their from address easily any more. I see two solutions with the following pros/cons:
eg: Alice and Bob work in sales and want their default "from" address as firstname.lastname@example.org. They also need the ability to send as email@example.com.
Option 1: Set email alias as their default. Except now only one person can use sales@ and adding the email address to other accounts gives a "proxy address already in use" error when I edit the AD account.
Option 2: Send as distribution list. This does everything I want, their default email addresses are alice@ and bob@ - not sales@.
Option 3: a client-side Outlook plugin to "Send as" multiple personalities
Option 4: Setup the sales@ email address as an separate mailbox, have them open additional mailboxes in their Outlook profile, and setup "sending on behalf of...". This would shock them (three sets of inboxes?!) and for a few other reasons I can't see this working well.
Can anyone suggest a way to get option 1 working, or option 2? I've tried a dozen google searches with not much luck.
