how do i let non network users use our domain to sent emails.

we have a non-network user how is a subcontractor that is in charge of answering certain emails that are coming through our website. the higher ups at the organization want to make it look like we are answering these emails internally. Now I have setup this person up as a contact and have all the emails forwarding to this person's outside email account. the Problem is when this person replys to an email the domain is different to our own, so is there a way to aillias her email relies to make it look like she is answering email internally?

Make it a guest account and strip rights to everything but email.

Or you could set her up with a imap/smtp account say gmail and set the email to foward to the gmail and then let her relay either via ip or however you want to do it off your smtp server.

Is the user offsite or onsite?  You can make an account and add it to the domain guest group.  If you setup your security rights correcly this will not allow access to network files and folders.  Then you can create a group policy for contractors that locks their access also.  Then give them a mailbox and let them log into the network and access it.  If the user is offsite you can them just give them outlook anywhere or OWA.

Also some isp's will allow you to relay off their smtp server with any email in the from address as long as you are in their ip range.  The close off all other smtp servers.

I would just setup a guest account and give her owa if that works for her.  Outlook anywhere if she wants full outlook.
