    I add an SMTP email address to my SBS mailbox called and
    they appear in my Inbox. OK.

    Now I want to send emails from . How do I do that?

    Someone suggested I create a mail enabled public folder and then "Send-As"
    from the Public Folder. Is that right? Is there a procedure?

    Hi Larry

    Google wasn't very friendly that's why I came to the technet forum. It gave
    me a load of stuff I don't want - you can't set the Send-As property of an

    Should I create a mail-enabled public folder and set the send-as property or
    maybe create a new pop3 account or what?

  4. POP3 is for retreiving mail. You said you wanted to send mail.

    Any help below? From a reply by MS CSS:

    If you send out e-mail from address or
    , you get error:

    You do not have permission to send to this recipient. For assistance, contact
    your system administrator.

    This is expected behavior because you don't have "send as" right for sales
    or service account.

    To fix this, please try the following:

    Note: Suppose you created accounts for sales and services in ADUC.

    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and
    then click "Active Directory Users and Computers".
    2. On the View menu, click to select Advanced Features.
    3. In the console tree, go to Domail.local\My Buniness\Users\SBSUsers
    4. In the right pane, right-click sales(service)then click Properties.
    5. On the security tab, click Add, and then type the name of the your account.
    7. Click Check your user account to verify the name, and then click OK.
    8. Verify that user is selected, and then click to select the Send As.
    9. Quit Active Directory Users and Computers.

    Step 2: Send out e-mail with account .

    1. Logon workstation with your account.
    2. Create a new e-mail.
    3. Fill in or in the From field. If
    you cannot see From, please click View/From Field.
    4. Send out e-mail.

    Hi Larry

    Sorry - I meant SMTP.

    Let me re-phrase the question.

    I have an SBS mailbox called . I have added an SMTP address
    to my mailbox called . So I can receive mail to
    in my Inbox.

    If I want to send an email from the email identity I cannot.

    How do I do that without creating a whole new SBS user/mailbox etc.?

    Shall I remove the SMTP address from my mailbox, then create a mail enabled
    Public Folder called WHATEVER. I could set the Send-As property of the Public
    Folder to allow me to send mail as

    Or what? Any ideas?

  7. Gocat,

    As was mentioned earlier, the better bet without going third party is
    to setup a mail enabled public folder using whatever email address you
    want. Add yourself to the public folder properties give yourself
    SendAs, then select it as the From address when sending out emails.
    Upon anyone replying to that email address, it will go into the public
    folder. Setup a rule in the public folder to forward a copy of
    anything posted or emailed into it, to your own email address.

    Here's more info on how to set it up.
