Exchange 2007 - Managing Accepted Domains


Exchange mailbox may have multiple SMTP addresses. For outgoing messages Exchange server always uses the primary SMTP address. For example, John Doe has a mailbox with primary SMTP address and secondary smtp address. John Doe can easily receive the message addressed both to and, but he can not send the message as because this behaviour is by design in Exchange server.
ChooseFromOWA for Microsoft Exchange 2007/2010 application allows users to send a message with any of their own SMTP addresses as the From address.
The application is a custom transport agent.

Current version:
This version can work only on Exchange 2007 SP1 with Update Rollup 4 or a later update rollup installed.



On your Exchange 2007/2010 Hub Transport Server or Edge server computer:
1. Select (or create) a user account that is a member of the local Administrators and Domain Users security group.
2. Log on as that user.
3. Create C:\Program Files\ChooseFromOWA2007\ directory.
4. Download archive file to C:\Program Files\ChooseFromOWA2007\ directory and extract all files.
5. Run ChooseFromOWA2007Setup.exe. Click Install button. Make sure that ChooseFromOWA2007 is appeared in the list of Transport agents. Click Enable button. Make sure that "Running" label exists in the status string.

3. Send your message to any external Internet address you can operate.
4. Receive the message you have just sent using any SMTP/POP3 e-mail client (for example, Outlook Express).
5. Check if the sender address (the From: field) is the same as the one you have saw on step #1.

We have tested ChooseFromOWA on Exchange 2007 SP2 (a single server that plays Hub Transport, Client Access and Mailbox roles) on Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 Edition SP1.
The program also has been tested on Exchange 2010 Server SP1/SP2 on Windows Server 2008 Standard x64 Edition SP2.


ChooseFromOWA for Exchange 2007/2010 application can work only on Exchange 2007 SP1 with Update Rollup 4 or a later update rollup or a Service pack installed.

By default users can send as their own SMTP addresses only.
However, it is possible to bypass this limitation by creating a security group named SENDASANYONE and placing there the user accounts you wish to be able to send as anyone.


Run ChooseFromOWA2007Setup.exe. Hit "Delete All" button in "Message Classifications" frame. Click Uninstall button. Make sure that ChooseFromOWA2007 is not in the list of Transport agents. Click Exit button to close the program.
