Hi there,

I'm trying to send an e-mail  as User B in Exchange 2007. I already gave the permission Send As via Exch Console, aleary used the command: [PS] C:\Windows\System32>Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "Ney Santos" -user UserB  -AccessRight SendAs, already gave full control in active directory security tab, and the message keeps returning saying that I don't have permission to send as User B.

Does anyone knows how to do it please?

Thanks.

send as permissions takes time to propagate so either wait or restart the information store and system attendant service
First thing I would do is give myself Full Permissions via the Exch Console.
Then use OWA to open another mailbox / the user account you want to send message from.

Oh, the easiest way to send a message from another user is to modify the "From" textbox to the username you wish to use on the new message.

Confirmation (same problem as the OP): restarting the information store fixed the issue:
