Multiple reply to address w/ Exchange?

By jwhite ·
I have a mail server running Exchange 5.5, SP3. All of my users are on Outlook 2000. Currently we are housing 2 companies in the building and the many of the users do work for both companies. On the Exchange server we have it set up so that it accepts mail for both companies, each employee having two different email addresses. The users each have one Exchange mailbox where all their mail goes, regardless of what address it was sent to.

What we want to be able to do, is have the user choose which of their email addresses is sent as the default reply-to-address on a an individual message basis. That way people who receive the email know which company it came from, instead of relying on signatures.

On the Exchange server you can choosewhich SMTP address is the default. Is their a way for the users to do this on the client side?

Thanks,

Jamie

Multiple reply to address w/ Exchange?

This is a common request and I'm not aware of any client-side function that allows you to do this. I think this is probably by design as a security/anti-spam measure.

As a workaround, you could use the Send on Behalf of function but this would require two mailboxes per user. However, both could be opened by Outlook and this would have the additional advantage of keeping the mail separated without resorting to Outlook rules to sort it out.

to add to paul's comments, you can use one mailbox for each company, and just give everyone send as permission for those two mailboxes.

That way, the user can use the From: field and just pick which mailbox to send from.(without having two mailboxes per user)

Don't know if it's feasible, but thought I would mention it.
