How can I set up a user's email so that everytime that he sends out an Outlook email the emails shows as having been sent by a distribution group?

How can I set up a user's email so that every time that he sends out an Outlook email the emails shows as having been sent by a distribution group email address?

Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 are being used.

Currently we have a distribution group named Reports. The only member of the Reports distribution group is a user named Mike Smith.

Currently when Mike Smith sends out an email, the email shows as having been sent out by Mike Smith.

We need to make it so that whenever Mike Smith sends out an email he has the option of selecting the alternate name of Reports from the From field so that when users receive these emails they will show as having been sent from Reports instead of Mike Smith.

How can this be set up?

You need to grant the user SendAs permissions to that group. Like this:
Add-ADPermission GROUPNAME -ExtendedRights Send-As -User USERNAME -AccessRights ExtendedRight | fl

Then when the user is sending the email he needs to enter that group's name in the From field of the email.

Is this something that I can do using the Exchange Management Shell?

I have already seen that it is not possible to do this using the Exchange Management Console.

Please provide me with the exact Exchange Management Shell command.

Yes. Via the management shell. The exact command is written above. You just need to change the groupname and username to fit your needs.
