I am setting up a general email account for users of a certain software to ask questions of software admins. The users requesting answers do not have thier own email addresses so I created this account. I have evrything locked down via hub transport restrictions however,
I would like to auto-populate the To: field to direct the email to the admins without the user needing to type in the username.  The users will be accessing exchange 2010 via OWA.

Is this possible?

Thank you for your time.

Normally Outlook and OWA auto use the account that logs in into the Mailbox

I don't follow what you are saying.  The only purpose for this account is to send an email to one person. What I would like is when anyone signs into this general use email account and opens a new email, I would like to To: field to be automatically populated with the username of the admin of the software i.e.    To: ALSADMIN@COMPANYNAME.COM

I hope this helps,

Chris

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The general mailbox that anyone can use will send out an email from ALS@COMPANYNAME.COM that part is ok. It doesn't matter who is signing into this general mailbox. The only thing I want is the person they are sending the email to be automatically prepopulated in the TO: field not the FROM:

Look at this as an anonymous email account to send suggestions to an administrator. Everyone knows the login information to ALS@companyname.com and the password. I would just like to minimize errors or confusion by populating who this email is being sent to.

so when they open a new email the name of the person they are SENDING the email to is already filled in, all they have to do is type in the suggestion.

With OWA, no that isn't possible.
Your best option is to write a web page that sends the email for you. If it is only sending to an internal recipient you will not need to create any kind of relaying options. A box for the subject line and body will be all that you need.

Normal population of TO isnt possible from Exchange side so as Simon said you need some third party or some other solution
