Hello Experts,
I have SBS with Exchange 2010.
I have a user which have many email aliases and in outlook I configured additional dummy SMTP account to simplify sending mail from one of the aliases.
But know I see there is a problem because user need to have different display name when sending from another account.
How can I achieve this?

Best regards
Fooky

Step 1: To have multiple FROM addresses enabled in an account, it needs to be granted delegate access permission to the inbox of every alternate FROM address.
1. Open Outlook 2010 under the profile that you wish to delegate.
2. Click on the File tab.
3. Click on Account Settings, and then click on Delegate Access.
4. Click on Add and then OK.
5. Select the Exchange Account that you wish to delegate your mailbox to.
6. In the Delegate Permissions dialog box, set the Inbox permissions to Editor.
7. Click on OK when you finished setting the delegate permissions and then click OK.
Step 2: Log into your main Exchange account and send emails from multiple FROM addresses.
1. Open Outlook 2010 with the account that was granted delegate access.
2. Click on the New E-mail icon.
3. In the New E-mail window, click on the Options tab.
4. In the Show Fields group, click on the From icon.
5. Click on the From button beside the From field.
6. Click on Other E-mail Address.
7. In the dialog box, click on From.
8. Select an Exchange account to which you have access permissions.
9. You can now send an email from that account’s address.
I hope this will help you.

I don't believe you can change the actual display name as this is tied into the AD/Exchange account itself and you can only specify one in there.

The only option (I'm aware of) would be multiple accounts but as you've noted you can't do this.

Sorry FooKy but can you please elaborate? If you create an additional Shared Mailbox then this doesn't actually require any additional CALs, unless you are referring to some other type of licensing?

Commented:
You could create distribution groups for the additional addresses and allow the user to send as these groups.
