Hey guys.

I have a server which has 2 domains tied to it.

domain1.com
domain2.com

I know you can only have one as your DEFAULT... However, I want to be able to send out emails from EITHER domain. Is there a way in Outlook 2003 (or any version) to specify what your sending address is?

You have 2 options, you either setup 2 mailboxes 1 with the primary address of one domain and one with the primary address of the other domain, add them both to outlook and make sure that Send As permissions have been assigned.

You can then use the from field to chose which mailbox you send from.

The other option is a 3rd party tool like: http://www.ivasoft.biz/smartreply2007.shtml

Okay I gotcha. I had tried this and typed in FROM field the other domain (with my email obviously) and it said I dont have permissions... which made 0 sense to me! I will try it again.

the from Field will only work if you have seperate mailboxes, you cannot chose which address you send as if they are part of the same mailbox unless you use a 3rd party tool like the one I linked to above.

Ahh I see. Yes. I just tried it and the emails simply still come from the primary address. I also tried doing just a distribution group, but unfortunately it wouldn't let me send on behalf of that distribution group either (which makes no sense).

to Send As a distribution Group you would need to run the following Exchange Management Shell command:

Add-ADPermission -Identity "Distribution List Name" -User "DOMAIN\username" -ExtendedRights "Send-as"

Replace Distribution List Name with the name of your DL and replace username with the name of the user.

This is an exchange 2003 server. I actually, personally, send on behalf of distribution groups all of the time. I have set my boss up in the same manner, but for some reason for him it bitches about privileges.

When did you set the permissions? It can take up to 2 hours to go through unless you restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service.

I had actually had them set for like 2 days... it still wasn't working. I just recreated the distribution list for testing purposes. Also restarted the information store, still says do not have permission to send on behalf of. He is a member of the distribution group.

If I had him to another distribution group, he can send on behalf of that group without issue.

I suppose the reason is because it's a group on the same domain. I will set him up with 2 mailboxes. It is truly a better idea.
