Ability to switch accounts when in office/home?

I have two accounts set up on my outlook 2k, one is my personal and another one is my work's. This way I can receive email in my laptop from both accounts, without any need to forward one to another. This is also good when I hit 'reply' to an email from either account, and that account's settings will be used, so if it's a work related email, then it will use the work's email as the sender's.

My question is, is there a way to switch the account at the time when I create a new email to send out? As I type this here at work, every time i send an email out, it will use my default email account , which is home, when obviously I'd like to use the work email as the sender. I'm imaginging I can go to 'accounts' and switch the default account, but is there a less permanent solution 'on the fly' as im sending emails?

ok i got this one i think...if you have two accounts set up just press the arrow beside send.  It will list the account name and you can choose which you want to use.  If you want you can set your account name by choosing Tool->accounts->Mail->(one of your two accounts)->change the first field on the general tab and click apply.

If you use the same server for both accounts Outlook will just put a (1) beside one of them and I would recomend what I did above.  Otherwise just choose your pop server.

hope this helps.
