Using "From:" field sending email through Exchange, or setting reply address differently




On new test setup of Windows Small Business Server 2003, I am trying
to send email from Outlook 2003 through my Exchange Server, currently
all settings are defaults. But the email that is sent to an external
POP3 address has the From: field set to "(e-mail address removed)".
My problem is the recipient cannot reply to this email with this
internal address. :(
(This is my first time using Outlook with Exchange type account).

I thought that I can use the "From:" field when composing in Outlook
so I have a "reply to:" of an external POP3 email address. But any non-
blank valid email address in the From: field makes the To: address
rejected and email is not delivered with this error message "You do
not have permission to send to this recipient".

I know how to do it on per email basis using the options while
composing, but not as default without using options.

Is there a way to make a "From:" field save permanently? Is there
another way to accomplish what seems simple, that email going to
external POP3 account will have another POP3 address to be replied-

Sounds like the Exchange administrator needs to configure each mailbox with the correct address to which responses should be sent. For assistance, ask in the newsgroup.
