    Resending a Message (Outlook 2000)

    When attempting to resend a message from Outlook, all goes well until I click the send button. I get an error message: Unable to send this message on behalf of specified user.
    We are using Exchange Server 5.5 and others can complete this action without any problems. There are just a few of us who are unsuccessful. What am I missing ? Thanks for your help....Carol

    "Unable to send this message on behalf of specified user." this may be a clue, the user has blocked receiving e-mail from certain senders.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    I saw this at a client site last month, and unfortunately it was never resolved while I was there, so I don't have a solution. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15> The message not only displayed when trying to resend, but also when trying to assign a task, and trying to send email on behalf of someone (permissions were definitely granted). I assumed it was something that would have to be resolved on the Exchange side. Good luck, and let me know if you find out what's wrong, I'm still curious.

    I have seen this message when it made sense

    I have seen this message, but it was clear what it meant at the time.
    Using the Corporate / Exchange server version of outlook, If you display the From: toolbar and enter someone else as the sender then you get this message if that user hasn't given you the appropriate permissions.

    If you are using NT, this is a known issue. If not, then I'm not sure...

    Your account on the Exchange server must have Permissions, WinNT Accounts with Permissions, "Send As" checked. The problem is that NT users authenticate differently than other OS types, which ends up causing all sorts of problems.

    We are running Windows 2000 and it's not everyone, just select people and very random.

    Windows 2000 is just NT dressed up for the prom. You have the same issues as far as authentication goes. As for the problem only happening with some users, each recipient (user) can have different rights/settings on the server.

    I'm not saying this IS the problem, only that it's a likely one. One clue would be if the problem only showed up after the upgrade to Win2K. If they had the problem before then we have to look elsewhere.
