SmartReply 2007 is an utility for Exchange Server users who need to send mail from different addresses.
This utility allows an Outlook user the ability to easily select the From address of the new, replied or forwarded message.
The message can be replied with the same From address as original message has been sent to.
Also you can set a different signature for each e-mail address.
Being used solely, SmartReply 2007 can only change the Reply-To: address but not the From: address.
In combination with ChooseFrom utility it can change the From: address.
The utility is an Outlook COM add-in.
Typical scenarios of usage
Scenario 1. Your company has several company names that it goes under for various aspects of the business. As a result of that, you are running into the need to be able to choose which email address to send from. As the company runs Exchange, IvaSoft ChooseFrom utility has been bought and installed on the server. So far so good, but users complain about the need to fill out the "Have replies sent to:" field every time they need to send as non-default address.
SmartReply 2007 simplifies the process of selection the From address.
Scenario 2. You are in an Exchange Server environment and have permission to send on behalf of/send as another user. You can enable the From: field from the view menu of your Outlook and select the appropriate name/address to e-mail from. However you can't assign different signatures to different e-mail addresses then.
SmartReply 2007 can help you to solve this problem. You do not need to install any server-side software like ChooseFrom to implement this functionality.
Scenario 3. A combination of previous two scenarios.

About this demo version.
This demo version of SmartReply utility is fully functional, but will show a splash screen when it loads.
Q. I get error messages when receiving mail. All of the alternate "EX" addresses show a message saying "Receiving reported an error, 0x08840900: The server name you entered cannot be found on the network (it might be down temporarily). Please verify that you are online and the server name is correct". I actually get mail, but these messages will be disturbing to other users. What's the matter?
A. You should perform step #9 of Installation section to exclude the fake accounts from Send/Receive group.
The problem occurs after changing the Active Directory Primary Address.
Using the SmartReply2007 tab in Outlook:
Choose the "Remove" button to remove the alternate address, and Outlook restart
Choose the "Re-read the Active Directory" button, and Outlook restart
Choose the "AD Addresses" button, and Outlook restart
After performing this Outlook seems to be correctly configured, the Account list shows the new Primary address and correct alternate address. When Sending or Replying to a message the E-Mail account column for Inbox or Sent Items views shows the chosen From address.
However the emails are all sent with the old default address, when looking at the received email To address in the Outlook message window and using Options Internet headers.
Did I miss something in the re-configure?
Assuming you are running Outlook in cached mode (default setting), try to disable Outlook cache mode, restart Outlook, then enable cache mode and restart Outlook again.
