I use Microsoft outlook
I have a yahoo email account.  I connect to there and download the emails OK

I have a BT together account with BT anytime so I am connected to the internet all day, but have to send emails via a BT email account.  So I can send emails OK

But when I reply to an email, it tries to reply using the yahoo account. (I goto options and change to BT account to send) This is hassle.  How can I set outlook to always use the BT account for sending ALL emails ???

Open Outlook go to Tools>Accounts and click on the "Mail" tab. Click on your BT account and "Set as Default". Now when you send mail it will use BT autmatically.

BT account is set as default already.
It is stand-alone, not part of a work group

it is Microsoft Outlook 2000 (9.0.0.2711)

Thanks
