Send on Behalf of Exchange 2010 SP2

Hello,

I have Exchange 2010 SP2, running on Windows 2008 R2 in a lab setting.  For some reason,
I'm now getting two emails, one regular email with a 2nd email on behalf of.

This is not something I've setup, and have looked at all the permissions and can not find out what is driving this.  

This is what I've looked at and confirmed no permissions are setup to do this on purpose.  Not sure what elese could be driving this.  Any thoughts other than what's listed below?

I even gave send as permissions on the security tab in ADUC for the user.


Outlook Delegates
 
There are major steps in order to use Outlook Delegates. The first is to select the user and add him as a delegate. You then must share your mailbox to that user.
 1.Go to Tools and choose Options
 2.Go to the Delegates Tab and click Add
 
3.Select the user who wish to grant access to and click Add and then Ok
 

Note: There are more options you can choose from once you select OK after adding that user. Nothing in the next window is necessary to grant send on behalf.
 1.When back at the main Outlook window, in the Folder List, choose your mailbox at the root level. This will appear as Mailbox – Full Name
 2.Right-click and choose Change Sharing Permissions
 
3.Click the Add button
 4.Select the user who wish to grant access to and click Add and then Ok
 
5.In the permissions section, you must grant the user at minimum, Non-editing Author.
 
Exchange Management Shell (EMS)
 
This is a fairly simple process to complete. It consists of running only the following command and you are finished. The command is as follows:
 
Set-Mailbox UserMailbox -GrantSendOnBehalfTo UserWhoSends
 

Exchange Management Console (EMC)
 1.Go to Recipient Management and choose Mailbox
 2.Choose the mailbox and choose Properties in Action Pane
 
3.Go to the Mail Flow Settings Tab and choose Delivery Options
 4.Click the Add button
 5.Select the user who wish to grant access to and click Add and then Ok


Thanks,
Robin

Does the same user has SendAs and Send-on-behalf ?
Only one should be given .....

No, it doesn't.   Also, should it be sending out two emails?  One regular email, then the 2nd with on Behalf.  I didn't think you got two, but I could be wrong.

Why does it sends on behalf if its from its own or trying to send from someone ??
Normal circumstance this will never happen :(

Good question!  I don't want to this at all.  If I understand send on behalf, you Compose a new Email, click the Options tab, and make the From Field visible.

  But, I'm just sendng a basic email To and From only.

The only thing I was playing with that comes to mind is the RBAC and could I have added a role that I don't understand yet?

This is how I would actually Send On Behalf.  Is there another way?
 
Do the following:
 
Outlook:
 
Compose a new Email, click the Options tab, and make the From Field visible. Now go back to your Email and choose From :

Now, when sending out the Email it will appear to be coming from User B on Behalf of User A.

Manpreet SIngh KhatraSolutions Architect, Project LeadCommented:
Check if the from field isnt using UserA as from instead of UserB himself being in the From field ...... or you could simpley create a new Outlook profile to rule this out.

Hi Rancy,

I created a new profile in Outlook, but I'm still seeing the same results.  I must be overlooking another setting somewhere on the server.  I removed all my memberships except domain user, and it still is happening.  If i send to another user, it's sent on my behalf.  I didn't change any of the default policies that I'm aware of.

Ideally it doesnt happen .... so does UserA has "Send-on-behalf" rights on UserB.

logictrailAuthor Commented:
Yes,  I even just tried this PS,


Set-Mailbox -Identity <Mailbox ID 1> -GrantSendOnBehalfTo $NULL


But, it's still sends out on my behalf and I can see the sender as being me.  I logged off the workstation, then logged back in then tested.

Does the same happen from OWA\Webmail ?
If you go to EMC and check the Send-on-behalf ?

- Rancy

logictrailAuthor Commented:
Yes, it happens in OWA.  I checked the properties on the mailbox, and there are no delivery options setup on the user.   No send on behalf either in Mail Flow Setting, Delivery options.

Hi,

I compared the two files and don't see anything different.  Seeing it's a lab, I'm not going to worry about it at the moment.

Thank you,

Manpreet SIngh KhatraSolutions Architect, Project LeadCommented:
It shouldnt happen .... do you have multiple DC's in the lab .... was there some server built and not properly removed in LAB ?

- Rancy

logictrailAuthor Commented:
Yes, there are two DC's and no.  These are the orginal DC's.  Thanks for your help!
