unable to change "from" address in outlook 2007/exchange 2010)

I've an account in exchange with multiple addresses
(i.e. chris.martin@contoso.com; martin.chris@contoso.com; martin.c@contoso.com; info@contoso.com)
the first one is the default address that is good in 99% of cases

I've tryied to send a mail with some other address of mine (I'm specifically interested about info@contoso.com) changing the "from" filed manually following this solution


but when I send the message I get the NDR from the server

"it's allowed to send a message with another sender address only if you have the needed autorizations" (I'm translating from italian, so the english message could sound a little different)

I wasn't able to find such permissions i my exchange 2010 settings, any help?

thanks  in advance

You need to make sure that under the exchange tab for the account that the user is trying to send as is on the allowed list of send on behalf of.

You may need to install exchange admin on the console with active directory users and computers to get the full view or use ad users and computers on the exchange server itself.

Hope this helps.

thanks for the quick aswer, I'm using exchange 2010 on w2008 r2 server (that is DC too) and there'se not "exchange" tab in the user properties...

I used to see such a tab on our previous server (exchnge 2000+win 2000)....




the exchange management console should allow you to do this.

this article is welle xplained, but it refert to a user "A" that is sending as user "B"

I want to send always as user "A", but using the the addresses that I want to use (see examples in original post) are all related to user...
It's possible only if you use a third-party utility.  Google for ChooseFrom.
