We have a distribution group set up called Inventory.  The Inventory group has two email addresses, inventory@company1.com and inventory@company2.com.  There are also two members fo this group.

I need member1 to be able to send mail not only as himself, but as inventory@company1.com.  Since that email is already attached to a distribution group, it cannot also be added as one of his.  Does anyone know a way I can make this work?  The email are generated from our point of sale and keep getting rejected saying he does not have permission to do so.  If I remove inventory@company1.com from the distro list and add it as one of his, everything works, so this is obviously a permissions issue.

@Sunnyc7 - Yep, everything was correct.
@Dave - That was good but you can only assign an email address to a single entity.  I cannot create a mail user usings inventory@company1.com AND have a distribution list with the same address.

These emails are being sent out of our point of sale system.  We have had similar issues with other programs trying to "send as" through exchange so I just created a new gmail account and set it up to use inventory@company1.com as an external address.  Then I configured my point of sale to send through the gmail smtp server just for this address and it is working great.   Eventually I am going to stand up a linux mail server just to use for these odd issues but this works for now.
