  • using Microsoft Outlook 2003
  • using Exchange 2007 server

What I want to do:

  • send email on behalf of
  • want to hide my own exmail adress

I managed to have direct replies (using the answer button) to But the problem is that my own email adress is visible in sent mails. I don't want my email adress to get public.

If there is no solution for Microsoft Office 2003, is there one for Office 2007/2010?

Outlook supports different identities. Take a look at this description:

Care to explain what the link says about "different identities"? – slhck May 6 '11 at 6:50
Thanks! I think I understand what you are meaning. But switching the user profile each time I want to send a mail on behalf as is not a practical solution. I would have to switch my profile from mail to mail (one time I want to send a mail directly and the next time I want to send a mail on behalf of a more general post box). – road242 May 6 '11 at 7:01
Outlook Express called the feature identities. Outlook 2003 calls it profiles. You have the ability to send with two different email addresses (identities/profiles). You can switch the email address by switching the identity/profile. This is the way Outlook does it. If you don't like it try another mailer. In Google Mail it is much simpler. – ceving May 6 '11 at 7:03

I managed to solve the same problem. I just removed the permission to "Send on behalf" on the ESM - Exchange 2003 (the target sender was a public folder). Then on the public folder "directory rights" I added the sending user with the "Send As" permision. Worked quite well!

Hope it helps!

After struggling with this issue in Outlook 2007/2010 I decided to build my own add-on to accomplish it. I just published an article describing the problem and the solution and a link to download the free add-in:

I will check if I can make it run on Outlook 2003 and be back soon.
