  • How to choose different email address>>

    Hello,
    i'd like some help, we've got some people at work who have got 2 email addresses, and ive been told that you can put in a drop down box above the To: and CC: where you can choose what email address the recipients will see, does this make sense??!?!?

    i.e

    From: [email protected]
    [email protected]
    To:
    CC:

    They can then choose what email to send the email from

    Thanks in advance, i hope you can help

    P.s, We're using Outlook 2003 and Microsoft Exchange

    I'm using 2000 at work but I'm pretty sure it's done the same way.

    Open a new mail and select the 'View' menu item and then select the "From Field"

      If you're using Exchange then the "From" box won't work. It will only allow you to send from your primary email address.

        ?? - I'm pretty sure I've used the "From" button with Exchange?! If you have "Send on behalf of" rights on the "From" mailbox, the mail comes out as "From Stonelaughter on behalf of mailbox"... if you have "Send As" rights, it comes as if from the second mailbox.

        I'm not sure what has to be set up on the server end, but I KNOW it works...

          Yes, you're correct Tom. Sorry I wasn't clear.

          When a single user has multiple email address, when using the Exchange account in Outlook, you can only send from your primary email address. However, you can setup another account using SMTP to connect to the Exchange server and have that account show any of the secondary email addresses that are configured.

              Ah, so it's not one user with two email addresses but rather two users with their own addresses.

              To get rid of the "On behalf of" you need to grant the user Send As permission for the other user.

              Lets say you want UserA to send as UserB. To accomplish this:
              - Open ADUC
              - Click View and make sure Advanced Features is checked
              - Open the properties of UserB and select the Security tab
              - Add UserA and then in the box below give them the Send As permission
