The Microsoft Outlook software allows you to designate other users as delegates and grant them permission to send outgoing messages on your behalf. When these types of messages are delivered, the email header displays the text "On Behalf Of" followed by the primary user's address. If you want to remove this portion of the header and make it appear that the message is coming directly from the primary user's account, you must grant the secondary user full send-as permission in the Exchange Management Console.
