Send on Behalf of by Group

Exchange 2007 SP1; Outlook 2007

Is it possible to grant all members of one distribution group "Send on Behalf of" permissions to all members of another distribution group?

Example:  We want all members of the group "#secretaries" to have "Send on Behalf of" permissions for all members of the group "#attorneys"

Thanks!

Yes this can be done, and the article below outlines it very well.  Long story short, you would login as the user ID of the attourneys distribution group, open Outlook, and add the Secretaries distribution group as a delegate with editor  access.  Here, check it below:

That just shows very BASIC send of behalf on. What you are asking for would need you to write powershell scripts to grant the correct rights to all the users. AND you would need to rerun the script every time a member of either group changed.

So I'm now trying this from a different angle.  Instead of trying to grant the entire group "#secretaries" sendonbehalfof access to the entire "#attorneys" group, I've been able to give a singe user mailbox sendonbehalfof rights to the entire "attorneys" info store:

get-mailbox -database "exhange server\attorneys" | set-mailbox -grantsendonbehalfto "user.user@xyz.com"

This grants user.user@xyz.com sendonbehalfof rights for all of the attorney mailboxes.  Now instead of having to replace "user.user@xyz.com" with user1.user1@xyz.com and the then doing the same thing with user2.user2, etc....is it possible to create a script where I can add all of the user names?

In other words, instead of typing in get-mailbox -database "attorneys" | set-mailbox -grantsendonbehalfto "user.user@hbsr.com"

hitting return

typing in the same line but replace user.user with user1.user1 then typing in the same line for user3.user3, etc...

Can I just create one script where I can run this as one script by adding all the users into once script instead of having to hit return and run the command for each user?
