  • Send-as

    Hi all,

    We are implementing our first Exchange Environment which will is Exchange 2007.
    While configuring the server i'm experiencing some issues with our current configuration.

    I have some people who have more than one mail-address and i want them to be able to choose which mail-address they use as sender (send-as).

    I have searched on the internet and it looks like the only way to solve this
    is to create an second mailbox for the second mail-address and then give send-as permission. Then it works.

    But is it possible to configure it so no extra mailbox is needed ?

    No, that's the only way to do it.

      An easy workaround for me was to do the following:

      In the user's Outlook profile create an addional pop account. Set the incoming pop server to something that doesn't exist and set the outbound smtp server to either your exchange server or another server that the user can relay through.

      Set the email address to the seconday address they want to send-as

      Now create a new message and on the top somewhere you should have the option to choose which account to use.

      Make sure to set 'Don't show this dialog box' when doing a send/receive or the user will see a pop server error.

        I was affraid for that answer .
        But isn't it a pity for such a big product as exchange, most of the enterprise companies are using it, and then just a simple feature isn't available

        This "issue" isn't going to be fixed in SP1 i guess ?

        I have one more small thing.

        Normally exchange uses the Display Name when mail is send.
        But some people in our organisation want to change that for external e-mail.
        Then you should youse the Simple Display Name, but exchange overrides that.
        Is that going to be fixed in SP1 ? i have read it somewhere ....
        Or is there an workarround for that ?

          I'll answer the first part of your question - no, this is by design. Note that it is the same as in previous versions of Exchange.

            Lots of people think that is a commonly requested feature - but it isn't.
            It is highly unusual for a site to have more than one domain or more than one domain. As Daniel has already pointed out, this is how Exchange has already worked.

            If you look at other email servers - they work in the same way. What is different with other email servers (Unix for example) is that because they use POP3/SMTP for message transfer you can put anything you like in the header of the message.
