I need to configure a mailaddress for a user with a reply address user@company-b.com. Our domain is company-a.com. The recipient should see the senders address as user@company-b.com. If I confiure an extra SMTP relpy-address user@company-b.com, the recipient sees user@company-a.com as the sender. How can I avoid this? thanks in advance for your solution

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

your user@company-b.com address needs to be set as the default address for the user (that’s the one in uppercase). Edit the address and select the set as default check box.

Also make sure your messages don’t transverse an external spam/virus gateway which is forcing the reply address to user@company-a.com.

    As a one-off solution, go to the user's properties in Exchange Administrator and go to the "email addresses" tab. Highlight the address that you want to be the user's "reply to" address (if it doesn't exist, add it), and click the button at the bottom "Set as reply address". From now on, this will be the user's primary SMTP address. The only caveat is that you need to be sure that your SMTP environment is configured to receive email for that second domain. Hope this helps.

    You will need to create a separate mail account and set the reply address as company B ( not your default company A ) Then, you may forward the mail to the user. The User then will check the "From" field on the reply mail message nad select the Company B account. It will now resolve as company B. The separate Company B account will need to be seen in the GAL and the User needs the correct permissions to SEND AS form this second address Hope this helps

    What does it show under "Masquerade Domain"? This is found under 'Default SMTP Virtual Server Properties', 'Delivery' tab, "Advanced' button. If it is not showing user@company-b.com, you might give that a try.
