Can you send as an alias

in exchange are you able to give someone permissions to send as an Alias to an account?

For example.

User A
Primary Address -
Alias -

User B
Would like to send as User A alias

Thanks in advance

Sure - just modify the script below and run the command in the Exchange Management Shell:

Add-RecipientPermission -AccessRights SendAs -Trustee –confirm:$false

Thanks for your reply Alan.

I have tried the Add-RecipientPermission but it's come back with the a not a recognized amdlet
