  • User has no permission to send as himself in Outlook.


    Yesterday I encountered a strange problem. A user tried to "send as" from a different mailbox but got a "you do not have permission to send as this user" notification. To send as a different user I enabled the "From field" in Outlook to select the proper "From" address.

    The user has two mailboxes, his private and a shared mailbox. When Later when I wanted the user to send a mail as himself I selected his name from the addressbook in the from field and selected his personal account (and mail address). When I tried to send it it also gave me a "permission denied" dialog.

    When I disable the from field. Go to the person's personal mailbox and send a mail sends without a problem.

    The mail adress that successfully sends mail is the same I select from the addressbook in the from field.

    So basically, why can I send mail without the "from field" but not with the "from field" enabled and with the right mail user / account selected?

    I have tried:
    - Deleting the Outlook profile and make a new one.
    - Re-download the addressbook.
    - Check the even logs (empty)
    - Do a succesfull gpupdate
    - Check all login / AD / Exchange info.. all are working fine.

    - Windows Server 2003 / Exch. 2007
    - XP client running Outlook 2007

    it's because, even thoug you're trying to send azs the user itself, by selecting yourself from the GAL, you're effectively trying to send-as

    and you don't have send-as permission for yourself, if that makes sense?
