E-mail and Alliasses Exchange 2003

In our company we have a SBS2003 server with Exchange 2003. This server handles the mail for three domain names. Every employee has one domain as the primary e-mail address, and the other two as an alias. For example,

Primary: peter.jackson@domain1.com
Alias 1 : peter.jackson@domain2.com
Alias 2 : peter.jackson@domain3.com

At the moment the situation is as follows. When an employee receives an e-mail on one of the alias addresses and sends a reply, the original sender receives the reply from the primary address.

What I want is that when someone receives an e-mail on an alias address and replies, de original sender receives an email from the alias that the messages was originally send on. Is this configurable???

Antoher thing I want is when a user creates a new e-mail message, he can choose from wich address the message will be send from. Is this configurable as well???

Thanks in advance!

If you go into AD and look in the email addresses of the users in question you will see the emails in question assigned to the user ie
Primary: peter.jackson@domain1.com
Alias 1 : peter.jackson@domain2.com
Alias 2 : peter.jackson@domain3.com
The primary in here will always be the default that you reply via, unless of course you change them over manually in here, you cannot swap via the from field in outlook to reply via domain1 or 2 or 3.

Too allow them to choose which address to send from you would need to create seperate accounts for them ie seperate AD accounts/mailboxes ie
peter.jackson
However you would have to change the user each time as you already have
peter.jackson
with email
peter.jackson@domain1.com

so
peter.jackson2
with email address of
peter.jackson@domain2.com
and
Peter.jackson3
with email address of
peter.jackson@domain3.com
Then give peter.jackson1 send as and full control over both the other mailboxes, he would then be able to choose to send via the other two email addresses assigned to the other 2 accounts.
HOWEVER
He would need to keep 3 inboxes open within his outlook profile for all 3 email addresses if you wanted to allow him too pick and choose via which peter.jackson email address he sent from.
As I mention this is very messy and confusing for the user, so if you can stick with him sending via domain1.com stick with that,
However I assume you want to mask the fact that he works for domain1 and domain 2 and domain3 when he emails out and works exclusively for each of them.

Hopefully the above makes sense as it is very convoluted.
