Using exchange 2010 without a network account

Let's say I create a distribution group. Then I forward inbound mail to the group to an mail contact's email address - so far so good and that works for receiving. But this person also wants to be able to *send* using the distribution list name. Normally I would provide the SMTP and account information if they were on the payroll, but in this case they are not so it's against policy. Is there a way to securely configure an external email address to use an internal distribution group to *send* without a network account? I said it's not possible, but I'm been wrong before.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would say you are correct. Give them an account on the network and grant it Send As rights.
