Outlook always attempts to send mail via Exchange

I have 3 email accounts set-up in Outlook on my home PC - 1 Hotmail, 1 POP3 and one connected to the MS Exchange at work.

When I send mail it always sends it via Exchange even though I've made the POP3 account 'default' and have made sure that it is still set in the Accounts listbox of the individual emails before I send them.

Apart from being annoying this means that Outlook tries to realy messages to my POP3 account via MS EXchange - and Exchange is set-up to disallow this.

How can I make sure that the Exchange route is only used when I manually change the Send options?

Thanks in advance,

Al

what is your version of outlook ?

if it is 2000 you'll find in control pannel, mail a tab called transport.

just move the exchange transport after the POP3...

This may work.
