I have outlook 2007 and need to send an email as if it was sent from another user. But I don't want to send it as... Send on behalf.

It's an admin needing to send it like her boss hit the send button.

In exchange management console go to the users mailbox you want to send as and right click and select "Manage Send As Permission", then add the person who will be sending the email.

In outlook create and email and on the options tab ensure the "from" option is selected.  Then above the "To..." button select "From" and locate that persons mailbox.

so I added myself to the send as permission and full permission and when I sent a test email I got and undeliverable "You are not allowed to send this message because you are trying to send on behalf of another sender without permission to do so. "
