Assign "Send As" permission to a user


Q. I would like to send email as a user X while he's on vacation (or sick, or visiting grandparents, or in Caribbean with his mistress, etc). How do I do that?

A. Follow these steps:

1. On the Exchange server, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. On the View menu, make sure that Advanced Features is selected.

3. Double-click the user that you want to grant send as rights for, and then click the Security tab.

4. Click Add, click the user that you want to give send as rights to, and then check send as under allow in the Permissions area.

5. Click Ok to close the dialog box.

On the computer, where Outlook is installed:

6. Compose a new message, click on the View menu, and select the From: item.

7. Click on From: and select the person you want to send as. You can also type in the name, but for some reason it doesn't always work.

There have been reports that depending on the patch installed on Exchange you may have to tweak the permissions in step 4. If above doesn't work, try removing all permissions and leaving only "send as" checked.
