I've set "send as" permission for a user to a distribution group, however, after 4 days, outlook is still throwing errors of "You can't send a message on behalf of this user unless you have permission to do so".   I've done the below.  

In ADu&c,  in the security tab of the distribution group, I've added the user and checked the "send as" checkbox.

I am running Exchange 2010 sp1, the distribution group is a universal distribution group.  I've tried this on OWA and I get a red error saying something similar to the NDR I get from outlook.

Try using the EMS to add the permission with this:

add-adpermission <group name> -user <user to grant permission to> -extendedrights "send as"

If that also doesn't work, check to make sure that the DCs in your environment are replicating properly.

Have you tried restarting the Information Store to try and force the change?

"Exchange 2010 sp1"

I would start by bringing the server up to date.
Exchange 2010 SP1 hasn't been supported for almost two years.

Hi,  

   I got it resolved.   I read on another post that when you put in the "from" address, the distribution list must be grabbed from the Global Address list.  I didn't because it was hidden so I just typed it in which apparently you can't do.  Anyways, I un hid and tried it again and it worked.  

Thanks for suggestions
