SBS 2011 Exchange 2010 Multiple Domains In Outlook "From"

Hi Experts

I have setup my sbs 2011 to accept Multiple domains (4 Domains), is there a way to setup Outlook so onece users create a new email they get a choice of which Domain to send from the "From" in outlook.  I know thats possible when you have multiple Pop Accounts, but how to setup SBS 2011 Exchange 2010 this way. If this is not possible with SBS 2011 please advice my options like Multiple servers, virtual servers, Multiple AD i dont know what ever it takes.

Thanx

You need to setup exchange in hosting mode to accept multiple tenants

It's quite easy to do.  Follow the steps outlined in this blog post and then users will have a drop-down menu on Outlook's Compose window to select which domain they are sending from.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

@TechSoEasy but first exchange has to have the addional mailboxes for the other domains that are not in the same forest.  Only then will the accounts be available otherwise they won't exist.

Not true.  This is not about having domains in other forests... it's about setting up multiple email domain names on the same Exchange Server which is a common practice for small businesses.  (Not so common for larger ones).

All that is done for this to happen is to add the domain names as accepted domains as described in this blog post:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2011/04/13/how-to-configure-sbs-2011-standard-to-accept-e-mail-for-multiple-authoritative-domains.aspx

The OP has already stated that he has accomplished this.

Doing this, however, still doesn't help the fact that Outlook doesn't natively allow for users to select their "From" address even if they have multiple email addresses assigned to their mailbox.  To work around this problem, creating a dummy POP3 account does the trick.  That is what is recommended in the article I linked above.

Thanx all, @TechSoEasy so in exchange 2010 Management console (email addresses Tab) if I have user1 that has email address user1@domain1.com.au and user1@domain2.com.au and user1@domain3.com.au according to the instruction i can have the From option, I haven’t tried this but is that means that all the emails are going to 1 inbox or is there a way (other than creating Rules in outlook) to have seprate PST or OST files so not only they have the From option but also the emails are going to separate Inbox... Hope I am clear

Thank you
