reply from default

We are currently migrating from an Exchange 5.5 and Outlook XP environment to
Exchange 2003 and Outlook 2003.

I've migrated a couple of resource mailboxes that I have rights to I notice
that when I now go to reply to a message that the From field comes up and
displays the name of the mailbox that received the message. This is different
to the behaviour that we has in 5.5 and Outlook XP.

Is this normal in the environment that we are moving to? And is there a way
to change it?

Thanks in advance for all help.

Normal - and in fact, it's a blessing for most, as most companies *want*
replies to come from the address that the original message was sent to.

Thanks Lanwench, I like that answer, it means I don't have to worry about it!
I know I am going to get asked the question about being able to change the
default though.

Is that possible and if so how would you do it?

Thanks again,

Scully

Users can't change the default/reply address in their own mailboxes.
However, if they want to open something sent to (e-mail address removed) but
reply as (e-mail address removed), they can view the "From" field and remove the
joebloggs address - leave it blank, and the reply will come from janedoe.
