Is there any way to turn off the "Show From" button in Outlook 2007? when you
click on New for a new email and then go to options there is a Show From
button. We do not want people to be able to use that. How Do I turn that off?
Thanks

So are these users of Exchange as the mail server? You need to go into
the Mailbox Rights option in Exchange to alter permissions (User
Properties -> Exchange Advanced tab -> Mailbox rights). There are 2
settings: "send on behalf of" and "send as". "Send on behalf of" is a
right you can assign to individuals (User Properties -> Exchange General
tab -> Delivery Options) and makes it obvious to the recipient that the
e-mail did NOT originate from the usurped identity. For the user to
"send on behalf of" or "send as", they will need to be assigned as a
delegate of that other account.

For information on how to configure Exchange, post in a newsgroup that
discusses Exchange.
