If that's the case, then you really *do* need to get your boss to fix
If the company provides a working email account, it makes a certain
amount of sense for them to ask you to use it.
But if all they provide is Microsoft Exchange, that's insane -- what
Exchange provides is *like* email, but it is *not* email. Once you start
trying to use it for real email, you find it's broken by design in a
large number of ways. It makes no sense for them to require that you use
Exchange for Internet email, because that's not what Exchange does.
If my corporate overlords told me I had to use my Exchange "messaging"
account for external email communication, they would get a quite clear
'no' in response. My response may also contain suggestions that they use
certain other objects for purposes for which they were not designed.
Seriously, just use an external email account and ignore the broken
corporate policy. 'Policy' is just a euphemism for not having to think
to post comments)
