If the Outlook add-in is installed on a client PC, a send as drop-down list will be available at the bottom of the message compose window in Outlook when you create a new message, or reply to/forward an existing message - for example:
This list is populated from the email list on Exchange, so you will automatically see any aliases that you have permission to use.
Using the Outlook add-in
To use the Outlook add-in, choose to create, reply or forward a message in the normal way and simply select the required alias from the send as list at the bottom of the compose window:
The chosen alias remains the same throughout the entire email conversation (unless you choose to change it later in the conversation) but any replies will still be directed to your primary mailbox.
Using a subject line trigger option
As an alternative to the send as list at the bottom of the compose window in Microsoft Outlook, you can specify your required alias in the subject line of an email message, prefixed by the trigger word: sendas:youralias.
This trigger option can be used when composing an email using Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Web Access, or if you are sending email messages from a mobile device. The trigger can be entered anywhere in the subject line and is removed after the message is processed by Exclaimer Email Alias Manager for Exchange, before it is delivered to the recipient(s).
Suppose that a user named Karen Green has the default alias of: email@example.com together with the following aliases:
When composing an email to be sent from the firstname.lastname@example.org alias, the following would be entered anywhere in the subject line of the message: sendas:email@example.com, as shown below:
The trigger text is removed after processing, irrespective of whether it is placed before or after the 'real' subject.
