Change from address

By anthonyc ·
First the Setup.
Have a MSEXCHANGE 5.5 sp3 on a NT 4 sp 6 box.
Use Outlook 97/2000 Clients.

Here is my problem.
I recently added a domain name and did the MX record and IMS routing inbound thing.
Added extra smtp internet addresses to some ofthe mailboxes and all is hunky dorey.
One problem. I need to be able to send email and be able to specify what the return address is. Lets say the SMTP ( main addy domain ) = and the second smtp addy ? When I type in the secondary ( in the from field the Client automatically resolves it to my Display name. ( As I should do ). This however sets the Return addy to which I don?t want. In short. I know I can change the default return address in exchange admin but Iwant it to be at the senders discretion to pick which one to use.

Any help is welcome.
Thank you

Try this in Outlook 2000;compose a new mail then go to view-->option from the new mail menu. Under delivery option, choose to have replies sent to (smtp address). It will resolve to the display name.
You might want to create internet only addresseson the exchange server and associate the desired user as the primary account. This way the user can stay with the primary address, but will be able to choose the internet address for the send replies to. Hope this helps you some.
