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

    Ah!  Hold on.  Sorry - because it is an alias, the only way that I know of is to add a POP3 account to Outlook and configure it with the correct username / password, but then disable the Receive element or your mail will start downloading you Exchange Mailbox, drop the new emails into the Exchange mailbox, which will make Outlook think there is a new message and the POP3 account will download them again and you end up in an infinite loop and an ever growing mailbox.

    There is an article here that explains how:

    Thanks for that - not really what i was looking for but it seems to be the only way to do what I need doing.

    Gone for plan B - move the alias to another mailbox and gave user permissions to send as
