Change From Account in Outlook to secondary email address

Ok, I understand the Send on Behalf of functionality, but what I"m looking for is a little different.

I've got user abc who is setup in my active directory. In my exchange setup, user abc has multiple SMTP address: abc@comp.com (this is set to the primary) and support@comp.com.

I want this user to have the option of sending mail and having it appear as it is from support@comp.com. Currently, it defaults to the primary address. I can change the reply-to address, but the from information still appears to be abc@comp.com. If I try and change the from address, active directory resolves the support@comp.com address that I've entered in and changes it to abc@comp.com.

Any way around this? Or will I need to create an additional AD account?
