Our users have mutliple SMTP addresses in Exchange. We set one as their default reply-to. From Outlook (for e.g., I’m using 2010 64 bit in Windows 7), in the e-mail compose window, there’s a dropdown with all the user’s SMTP addresses: However, when I chose one that is not my default reply-to address, I get an error like the following: Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups: Recipient’s name You can’t send a message […]
