How to use Exchange without using the Email

Alright, I will do my best to keep this as simple as possible. If you have any questions, please ask.

Our company uses Exchange 2007, email/calendar/tasks, and sync to phones. We have a partial owner of the company that needs to sync with our exchange for only calendar/tasks/phone sync, he has his own email (google app)

What I have done:
I created a user in SBS 2008, it automatically assigns our @mycompany.com name to his user account. I have setup his outlook to where it syncs with our exchange and I have setup his IPhone to sync with our exchange.

The Issue:
When he uses Outlook, it automatically sets From: to our @mycompany.com account, it needs to automatically set to his email account. I have setup his google app email account on outlook and is working correctly, and when he chooses from he can change to his original email...its just a nuisance, as well as on his IPhone, now when he responds to an email it goes through our @mycompany.com rather than the google app email

My Question:
Is there something in Exchange 2007, where I can set that whatever email goes out from his account defaults to his google app email. Internal people are using his @mycompany.com email to setup calendars/tasks/etc and it is confusing the owner and he is having to switch between, etc...

Thank you in advanced

For the Iphone, you can change what the default email address is, but if you happen to be on the Exchange mailbox and you select the new message button, its going to default to the Outlook email address.

For Exchange, the only way to get it to send as a different email address is to change the default mail address, but exchange would have to know about the domain and host/accept email.  ie, your domain is called dog.com, so all of your users have their default email address to be @dog.com.  Now lets say you purchased cat.com, you can setup Exchange to accept email for cat.com and then update your receipient policy to add cat.com to all of your users.  One by one, you can change the default send address to be cat.com.  

In your case, this is not going to be possible.

So what you are saying is, he has to continue to switch his From to the google app email.

The exchange takes priority over any email account setup on outlook?

Yes, if he opens up "Exchange" on the iphone, the from address is the from address in Exchange.  If he goes to the mail app (where you see all of the mail accounts listed) and click the new icon (lower right), it will send as what ever the default address is that you told the Iphone to use.
