Sending email from alias

Posted on 2013-06-05

In outlook 2010 I can send from and enter an email but when I send an email from my alias it comes back as

You can't send a message on behalf of this user unless you have permission to do so.

The email I'm using is my alias from the second domain.

name@domain1.com is my main email address

name@domain2.com is my alias and I can't sent emails from the alias email.

I have tried to enabled Send As but it only lets me select from the list of users not my alias email form the other domain. Also tried delegation but does not work either.

Can someone help?

You need to setup an email account for that user to successfully send an email on behalf of.

But that is not possible because name@domain2.com is already one of my SMTP email addresses.

Or am I wrong?

It is one of those Microsoft things you expect to work. But doesn't. Your option are, remove that smtp address from your profile and do one of the following.
•Create a separate mailbox and put the alias on the mailbox and configure it with send as permissions.
•Create a distribution group and put the alias on the distribution group and configure it with send as permissions.
•Create a dummy pop account in outlook and configure the alias as email address.

There are some examples of how to do this here
