I am trying to setup a user to respond to emails going into a public folder named "billing". However when they respond outlook obviously reply's back to the email from "user@contoso.com", not "billing@contoso.com". I need for reply's from the "billing" public folder to show the public folders email address instead of the users email address. How can I achieve this within the users outlook box? Also there will be other users as well replying which would need to do the same thing. We are using outlook 2010, and exchange 2007.

You have to assign SEND AS Perms to that public folder and make sure its visible in the Global Address List. After you make that change wait up to 2 hours for permissions to take effect.

In Outlook,  Enable the FROM Field, and enter the email address of that PF and SEND AS that PF.

Ok so "send as" does that need to be enabled on the server directly?

Is there any way of setting it up so that when the user is reading and responding to emails in that public folder they do not have to enter the "billing@" each time and it automatically comes up when replying from that folder itself?

That's correct. "Send As" needs to be setup on the servers. You have to put that "billing@" address every time otherwise it would take that user email address because that is the default email account.

We may have multiple users who reply from that billing@ public folder....can I set it up for more than one user. Also using exchange 2007 where is this located? Properties of that folder?
