We are running Exch 2010 and Outlook 2007. We have multiple companies and thus multiple domains. Thus each user has multiple email addresses. Is there  anyway to let them choose what address shows up in the from field. I know I can set a default Reply As in Exchange, but they need to change this on an as needed basis.  Using the From field and sending it using an alternate address, still shows the default.

On a New Email you can select Options Tab in the ribbon and hit Show From Field.

I've tried that, it still hits by gmail account with the default address.

Do the users simply have several SMTP relay addresses or are they hosted in seperate locations?

They are hosted on one exchange server, and I do believe they are just relays. Essentially if you look at the user in Exchange under the Email Addresses tab, they have one for each of our public domains.

In that case you can't do it. Outlooki in Mapi mode doesn't allow this it can only reply from the Primary SMTP address.

There are 3rd party products that you can use:

That is disheartening. Although I'm not opposed to a 3rd party app, their site looks really...well...lets just say amateur (judging purely on looks). Don't know if I would trust this software on my server, a client side app is one thing but this is a very important server.  Oh well, I'll just have to weigh the pros and cons. I'll keep this open until morning, but if no other options pan out I'll get you the points.
