We are new to Exchange Online/Office 365 and I have a user who used to be able to send email as a secondary mailbox they had access to in their Outlook and now it shows up as send on behalf.  How can this be set back?

Thanks

You can try these commands for the Windows Azure Powershell
$LiveCred = Get-Credential

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

Import-PSSession $Session

To verify that the permissions send mail on behalf of another user:
Get-Mailbox -identity user@example.com | fl *GrantSendOnBehalfTo

To remove Send On Behalf permission from a mailbox, use the following command:
Set-Mailbox -Identity user@example.com -GrantSendOnBehalfTo $NULL

As comfortjeanius suggested, you need to verify the permissions. It's easiest to do this using the EAC:

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Well the default one is configured by setting the default account in Account settings, it will not change based on the context. If this is a normal mailbox, she can add it as separate account in Outlook and it will auto-update the send address depending on which account she is working with (on Outlook 2013 at least).

If this is a shared mailbox however, the send from address will not change to it. As a workaround you can add the shared one as POP account so you can set it as the default, but again it's not an ideal solution.

To assign "Send on behalf of " permissions
Set-Mailbox -Identity <DisplayName A>  -GrantSendOnBehalfTo <DisplayName B>

Open in new window


To remove "Send on behalf of" permissions
Set-Mailbox -Identity <DisplayName A> -GrantSendOnBehalfTo $null

Open in new window

@ comfortjeanius - she does not want to send on behalf, but send as

@ vasilcho - ok to clarify If I have my mailbox open in Outlook and a secondary with full access and send as.  If I am in the secondary mailbox under my account and reply it will NEVER send as that user as it is under my account?

I want to make sure I'm clear as I can just change the from field and it will work, but the user would like to avoid that step and told me it used to work so want to make sure I am clear it is not possible.

I did some digging after, seems there is a known issue with sending from shared mailboxes in O365 (wave 15):

Our users have also confirmed that it worked before, so I was wrong in my previous post.
