I currently use MS Outlook Express but I want to transition to Outlook (full version) so that I can use the better contact and calendar (and other) features.  Everything imported smoothly, however 1 thing doesn't seem to be nearly as good in Outlook.  I have many email addresses and I need to be able to set the "from" field when I reply to or send an email.  Outlook Express made this extremely easy with a drop-down "from" field.  Outlook doesn't seem nearly as easy.  Is there an good way to do set the from field in Outlook?  Also (or if not) is there a calendar and better contacts program I could download to integrate in Outlook Express?

Thanks a look for your help!

What version of Outlook are you using? Outlook 2002 allows you to choose the sending account a little easier, but Outlook 2000 is pretty convoluted and not easy. One thing to note, if you receive a message through one account and then reply to that message, the reply will be sent through the same account as the message was originally received.

I'm using 2000.  I guess I have to pay to update to 2002 right?

Yes. Are you using Corporate Workgroup mode or Internet Only mode of 2000?  If you're using Internet Only mode you should be able to easily change the account used for sending. I'll have to look up the instructions though...I'll post them in a little bit.

OK.. correct me if I'm wrong because I haven't used 2K in a while but....

In Outlook 2K you should be able to compose a new message and in the "view" menu choose "From: field".  

I know sometimes though that this option doesn't work if you are using MS Word as your mail editor (Tools>Options>Mail Format>"Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages" checkbox).

Try this and let me know if it works...

Yikes! Are you really going to rely on BETA software to provide the SAME functionality that you already have?  Just curious, but did you try my suggestion (I just want to know if it still works in 2K.. which I'm pretty sure it does).

Good luck with the BETA.... I wouldn't use the BETA in a production environment.
