Reply from multiple smtp addresses RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, this is my first post here but have searched quite a bit on this topic and haven't found the answer I'm looking for, although it seems to be a question that has come up in the past.  I'll try to make this as brief as possible, but to the point.

    I have recently taken on the IT support of a small business.  Company has one server and one domain; installed on it is Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010.  Clients are running Outlook 2010.  They have multiple entities within their business so some users need to send and receive mail from smtp addresses such as @company1.com @company2.com @company3.com etc.  They are able to receive from these smtp addresses fine, but cannot send from any of them except the default reply to address (which I know is by design).  They all are sent from @company1.com.

    They do not want alternate ID's such as jbarkhamer@company1.com and j.barkhamer@comapany2.com (of course this would make it easy for me).  They want to be able to send as jbarkhamer@company1.com and jbarkhamer@company2.com at will.  I can see from Outlook how to send from multiple addresses, but when the other party receives the email the reply address is always from @company1.com unless I change the default reply to address to @company2.com.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to achieve this? I can provide more detail if needed on how the environment is setup.  Thanks in advance for any help provided.

    Jason

  • Thanks.  I'll try that out, it looks like they have a 30 day trial so I'll see if it does what I need.  I was hoping there was a solution without the use of other software, but from all the searching I've been doing, that doesn't seem likely.

  • Hi Jason,

    Base on my knowledge, no solution excecpt the third party tool like Rick mentioned.

    Thanks.
