Multiple Email Domain Addresses

By Psyadi ·

Exchange 2000. Windows 2000. Office 2000. SP'd to latest.

Problem: I have a company "xyz" that owns another company "abc".
I have a small group of users who work for both of the companies but the staff cannot allow the clients to know that they work for both companies.
This means when emails are sent out they must be sent out with the correct domain address eg. or

At present the only way i can find to allow the users to change the domain they are sending from is for me to manually change the default email address in Active Directory.
This needless to say is annoying and a waste of my time and the users time.

Question: How can i allow the user to change their default email address themselves?

Multiple Email Domain Addresses

You can have more that 1 e-mail address in Exchange. They even can be from different domains. But, there's always a default e-mail address on which mail will be sent.

Now to your question : They just CAN NOT change the e-mail address themselves because it's in Active directorie. They won't have enough permissions to do that.

Maybe a workaround is to create 2 users accounts for the same user. Both with their own mailbox, and create in outlook a second profile for the new user/mailbox. This way the user could switch themself when starting outlook. He would get the choice of which profile he wants to use.
