How do I send an email on behalf of another user in Exchange?

Being able to send an email on behalf of another user requires the person having them sent on their behalf to grant the sender permission. You must be using Microsoft Office Outlook to send an email on behalf of another user - Outlook Web Access does not have this feature.

  • Start a new mail message by clicking New

  • If the From box is not visible:

    • Click the Options tab

    • Click Show From to make the From field appear
      Clicking on the From button

  • Click on the From button and select Other E-mail Address...

  • Click on the From... button and select the contact from your Global Address List and click OK
    Selecting the user from the Global Address List

  • Type the rest of the email as you would if you were sending it yourself

Note that while you can select any name from the global address list, you can only send on behalf of those who have given you permission
