Consider a firm ABC running Microsoft® Exchange 2007/2010/2013. The Accounting department staff has their own mailboxes (email@example.com) and they are Outlook users. Their e-mail is handled through generic department distribution group (firstname.lastname@example.org), which ensures that all users receive each e-mail message. For internal mail they want to be able to send e-mail as each individual user, however when this user sends e-mail out of the office, the From address needs to be set to the address of the distribution group (email@example.com). This should be done automatically on Exchange server side.
Optionally, to send an external message personally, the user should set the message Sensitivity parameter to "Personal", "Private" or "Confidential".
Using SendAsGroup application would solve the problem.
