Invoking 'Send As' right in Exchange 2003

How can I enable the 'send as' functionality on Exchange 2003?  Is my only option to create seperate user accounts for the secondary domain, then grant the 'send as' right that way?  I have two domains, but as I understand it, I can only have one exchange server within my domain, but I would like both domains to come into the same Outlook instance, then be able to 'Send As' from either account.

To send from addresses on the secondary domain, you'll need to create two mailboxes, one for a user's email address on one domain, another for a user's email address on the secondary domain. This is because Exchange only sends email for a user from their primary email address.

I would normally use the user's main Active Directory logon account for their primary email address. Then, on the other account holding the secondary email address, grant the primary account Send As privileges. You can do this per the instructions at http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/tip/0,289483,sid43_gci1103948,00.html; it requires you to add the user's primary account to the Security tab of the secondary account, then allow the 'Send As' permission to that account.

When in Outlook, activate the 'From' field, then have users choose their secondary account from the GAL when sending email from their secondary domain mailbox.

I understand, I was just seeing if this was the only option.  Thank you.

You post is a little confusing.  You have two domains or a domain and a sub domain?  Also are you using Server 2003 or Server 2003 SBS?

If your trying to setup two Exchange mailboxes on the same computer, you have to first give the user rights to use both mailboxes (Active Directory Users and computers > The user account  properties > exchange advanced > mailbox rights).  Then you have to give rights to send as for both mailboxes (Active Directory Users and computers > The user account  properties > Exchange general > Delivery Options > Add the user account to send on behalf).  Then, local on the workstation, go to, Control Panel > Mail > show profiles > and add a profile for each of the different mailboxes.

Hope this helps.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Domain and a sub domain.  I'm a little confused by the last sentence in your response, is that really necessary?  I've never had to do that before.  Granted, I have roaming profiles setup on my network, so that may be why I've never had to do that....

The last part of my post is to allow you to choose which mailbox to view upon opening Outlook.  Our users don't use roaming profiles; perhaps this is irrelevant for you.

I believe Bumslaw was referring to allowing users to have both mailboxes set up in Outlook. This means users have the ability to choose which mailbox to open when running Outlook. However, unless you use Extra Outlook, you can only run one Outlook instance at a time, so this would only enable you to view one mailbox at a time.

There are other methods to send as a different mailbox, but these require a lot of client-side set-up to make them work properly. Granting Send As rights is mainly server-side (if you've any more than a couple workstations/users, you'll appreciate how going to each machine to do configuration isn't going to work).
