When I send an email, I would like to send a different reply address than the actual account address.  For example, I receive email at brandonb@company.com, but when I send the email I would like the reply email address to be brandonb1@company.com.

I know I can set the "Have replies sent to:" option on each email, but I don't want to have to enter this info. for every email address.  In Outlook Express, I can set the email address in the account properties.  Is there a way to do this in Outlook?

In Outlook 97/2000:

1. Select "Accounts" from the "Tools" menu.

2. Select the email account for which you want to set a special reply address.

3. Click on "Properties."

4. In the Properties window that comes up (in the General tab), in the "Reply address" field, enter the email address to which you want your messages' recipients to send their replies.

You will still be able to override this setting on a per-message basis. Making the change here just makes this reply address the default. Specifically, in Internet mail, it sets the "Reply-To:" field in the message header. Nearly all email programs look for and respect this setting.

I am using exchange server not internet email.  Is there a way to do the same thing in an exchange server service?

Yes, but in all likelihood you will have to ask your Exchange Server administrator to set this up for you, because it's part of your user-account information that's stored on the server. Normal Exchange installs do not have facilities to let end-users change that sort of information on the Exchange Server from within Outlook.
