Here is a simple solution to your problem:
- Create two separate mailboxes as follows:
- Give the user full access to both mailboxes.
- Go to user@company2 and forward e-mails to user@company1.
- Hide the account from the address book to prevent users from accessing it.
- While using the Global Address Book, save user@company2 as a contact.
- When the user wants to send a message from company2 he must select user@company2 and add it to the FROM field.
MEMBER FEEDBACK TO THIS ASK THE EXPERT Q&A:
You can also set up a second account (POP3) with the e-mail address as user@company2. Set it up as a sending account only in Tools -> Send/Receive -> Send/Receive settings (for Outlook XP and 2003). Then just choose that account from the Accounts button on a new e-mail.
