Exchange choosing which email domain to send email from

So We have exchange setup to accept email for multiple domains. For example user1 will have user1@domain1.com and user1@domain2.com. All the email for both domains come into a single exchange account. It seems like even if I type in the from address user1@domain2.com it still shows it coming from user1@domain1.com since that is the default email address on the account. Is there a way, without having to create to seperate exchange accounts that the user can choose which domain he wants to email from and it will show that way to the receiver ? Right now we are using Exchange 2003. If it is not possible in 2003 is this a feaure that works in Exchange 2007 or 2011 ?

I have run into this several times.  There are workarounds - as indicated above, but the short answer is no, the sender will be the default address of the user.
One of the other methods Alan mentioned and which is regularly given is the tools produced by Ivasoft.

Specifically http://www.ivasoft.biz/choosefrom2007.shtml on the Server, and http://www.ivasoft.biz/smartreply2007.shtml (http://www.ivasoft.biz/smartreply2010.shtml) on the clients.

I can't say I have ever used these, so do not endorse them in any way, but the founder of the firm is very prominent in the Exchange community, and I have heard of others using them to good effect.

Thanks Matt - had forgotten the name "Ivasoft" and couldn't find it!!
