Exchange 2010: ‘Send As’ and ‘Send on Behalf Of’ in OWA

As we know Exchange 2010 is coming with many wonderful new and improved features. Let me demonstrate one of the long awaited feature, “Send-As” or “Send on Behalf Of” in OWA..!!!

Before going forward, let me show you how to enable BCC and From fields in options.

Go to Options –> Settings –> Mail –> Message format and enable below option “Always Show From” and also if you want enable Bcc field to available always by default, select “Always Show Bcc”.

Yes, that’s true now you can keep Bcc option enabled by default in Exchange 2010 as opposed to enabling every time from “Options” while drafting a new mail in Exchange 2007 (however there is a workaround to keep it enabled by default in Exchange 2007).

Back to main topic, when you draft a new mail, you can see ‘From’ tab and you can select “Other e-mail address…” on the account you have Send-As or Send on Behalf Of permissions.

Send On Behalf Of : Let’s say I have Send On Behalf Of permission on Jayesh Raval, I selected it in From field and sending a mail to Santosh Pandya.

Santosh Pandya will see a mail from “Amit Tank on behalf of Jayesh Raval”.

Send As : Let’s say I have Send As permission on Nikunj Khunt, I selected it in From field and sending a mail to Santosh Pandya.

Santosh Pandya will see that mail came from Nikunj Knunt.

Now if you don’t have Send As or Send on Behalf of permission, of course Mail Tips gives you an error and doesn’t allow you to send mail like outlook.

Isn’t OWA 2010 a shadow of Outlook? Kudos to Exchange team for making such an immense product for us…!!

  1. If we look at the development of OWA that every release of a new version of Exchange, we get all the more and more close to the desktop version of Outlook!, it is very cool and a developers team really need to say a huge thanks for their work! Respect!

    Thanks for the review “send as”!

  2. Hi
    yes it’s a good thing, for sure. But, when will it be possible to delagate “send as” and “send on behalf” permission from OWA ?? still waiting for this important feature don’t you think ?

  3. On a related note I was wondering if its possible in 2010 OWA to grant users read and or write permissions to different folders of their mailbox like Inbox, Calenders etc? Much like proxy access in Groupwise?
    thanks dave
