How to give a user the ability to send mail 'on behalf of' a Public Folder

I have been asked several times how someone can have an e-mail alias, such as "[email protected]" which not only receives into a public folder, but also has the ability to send e-mails.  Obviously the setting up of the public folder, e-mail etc is well documented, but since I have been asked this again I thought I would share my source of knowledge -

How to Give a User the Ability to Send Mail on Behalf of a Public Folder

How to Give a User the Ability to Send Mail on Behalf of a Public Folder

To give a user the ability to send mail on behalf of a public folder, perform the following procedure.

  1. In Exchange System Manager, under Folders, right-click the public folder for which you want to give a user the ability to send mail, and then click Properties.

  2. Click Exchange General, and then click Delivery Options.

  3. Click Add to specify a user.

  4. You may have to make additional modifications if the following conditions are true:

    • The user's mailbox resides in a domain that is different from the public folder's domain.
    • The user's mailbox resides on a server that is located in a site that does not contain any domain controllers for the domain that hosts the public folder.

    Use one of the following additional steps:

    • Add the Exchange Domain Servers security group of the child domain with Read permissions to the ACL of the Microsoft Exchange System Objects container in the parent domain. This method is the recommended method for working around this problem.
  5. Move one domain controller from the parent domain to the user's Exchange 2003 site.
