Hello,

If you have Exchange 2010 you can use the from field

If you have Exchange 2007 It’s not possible to perform Send As operations using OWA. If you have full mailbox permissions for another user you can switch to that user’s mailbox and send mail. You can select the drop-down box next to your name in the main menu bar, then enter the name of another mailbox to open.

That looks to only allow sending as other users.  We want users to be able to have the 'from' field show one of their alias addresses (additional smtp addresses in exchange)

Hello,

With Exchange, it is not possible natively to send as an SMTP address that is not the primary on the object. One way to do what you want would be to setup a distrbution group, add this mailbox as the only member, then move the secondary SMTP address to the distribution group and set it as the primary. You can then give the user the send as right on the distribution group and they could select the distribution group in the From field.

You can't, you have to create a new mailbox and give the send as right.
