Send on behalf of a AD Contact Object / Exchange 2003

I'm sure there is a simple answer to this problem.

I have a contact set-up in Active Directory noreply@ourcompany.co.uk
Its put in the Sales OU

I would like everyone in the sales department have the permission to send on behalf of noreply@ourcompany.co.uk

I can't find a tab with any obvious clues to exchange permissions.

When the sales users are sending on behalf of noreply@ourcompany.co.uk they get a popup message saying "You do not have permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user."

Please help

you must be missing the "advanced" tab..
see here:

to add all sales users add them to a group and then add the group to "send as" permissions..

Don't use a Contact - you cannot set the permissions you need on the object.
Use a group instead, which you can, and don't set any members. Any replies will then be dropped silently.

Although my preference would be to use a mailbox, so that you can catch replies easily.

Sambee2 -
doesn't  NOREPLY@@ourcompany.co.uk  mean that there should be no incoming emails?

Thanks Simon and Giladn,

The email address is noreply@....  because I don't want any replies.
I don't want a mailbox on exchange to fill up with junk...

From the AD contact I can see "Exchange Advanced" tab?  
But only have Custom Attributes or ILS Settings to play with there...

I didn't read the link properly!  Thanks, I totally forgot about viewing Advanced Features in AD!  It's been an while and feeling a bit stupid!

I will let the AD security update and then try sending on behalf tomorrow.

Thanks again!
