I have a user that needs to be able to send email under their default email address and their alias addresses. Is there an easy way to do this?

I have added the aliases to their mailbox in Exchange and they can receive email for any of the addresses listed.

You can define additional Accounts in your Outlook. And user will be able to choose what account he wants to send an email from.

Hi this is pretty simple to do.
You configure outlook to use a second pop3 account that it effectively never checks.

You can see how this is done here > http://www.messageops.com/sending-as-secondary-alias-in-microsoft-exchange-online

Well, here you have more options, but none is not perfect:
1. you can create a new distribution group with the alias address and configure sand-as permissions and of course mail forwarding to user mailbox
2. As you have exchange/outlook 2010 environment, you can simply create second mail account with mail alias, set full permissions on that mailbox for the user and connect it as second Exchange account in outlook. In 2010 you can setup up to 10 different accounts
3. buy 3rd party tool like http://ivasoft.com/choosefrom2007.shtml

Make sure you test this to ensure it is acceptable.  Some email recipients will see mail from Outlook as "From UserA sent on behalf of UserB".  Personally I find that unacceptable and confusing to recipients.

@duffume - sending on behalf of another user is configured trough outlook delegation or send on behalf permissions at mailbox delivery options

I realize, davorin, but if you configure one profile to use the SMTP profile of another, where authenticated SMTP is required, the recipient may see it this way.  Some clients show this and some just show the simple intended sending "alias".
