We have users that have have multiple addresses on our exchange 2010 server.

Is there a way to allow those users to reply or compose email from any of those addresses on the fly?

Also... if someone emails one of the addresses can we make sure the reply comes from the address that the email was sent too?

If I understand it well. from outlook -->new email-->options --> show from button.
Not nativley.  The mailbox has a default from address, and it makes no difference what you select from Outlook.
You could set up each address as a mailbox, but then you would have the sent on behlaf of issue to contend with.

@tonyperth: setup each address and assign send as permission  ( not send on behalf) will do the trick. but the problem is the name of the new user ... ( it might be not a problem for the author).

Yes, but the user needs to be able to send from any of the addresses in their account at any moment.

Example:
user has these addresses:
johndoe@abc.com
johndoe@def.com
johndoe@ghi.com

Their default address is the abc.com address.

Now they need to send an email from johndoe@def.com.
How can we set it up so that they can do that?

another example: Someone sends an email to johndoe@ghi.com
when the user hits reply the reply should come from their @ghi.com address.
 
Cool, never thought of using security groups for that.

I think the solutions we will go with is setting up a dummy pop account.
