Sending email using two accounts

I use Outlook 2000 in the Corporate/Workgroup setting.  I have two Services configured - (1) Exchange Server for my primary email account (user@domain1.com) and (2) Internet Email for a secondary account (user@domain2.com).  I can receive emails from both.  When I send an email though, even if I am replying to a mail sent to the secondary account, it always goes out with my primary email address.

IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN SELECT AN EMAIL ADDRESS TO SEND FROM IN OUTLOOK 2000/CW SETTING/WITH EXCHANGE SERVER AND INTERNET EMAIL, WITHOUT USING PROFILES.

I have tried the From field, but when I try typing in the secondary email address it tells me I do not have permission to send as this user.

I have read dozens of responses to the same question, but have not seen an answer to this specific problem.  Most of the users who have asked the same question either use Internet Mail Only or end up setting up multiple profiles.  I don't believe I saw an answer to the problem using Exchange Server.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!

The FROM field is the answer.  If that doesn't work I believe you are SOL without multiple profiles.

Any idea why the FROM field gives me the error message? (You do not have permission to send the message on behalf of the specified user).  Is it because the secondary account is an Internet Email account?  Also, what should I be entering in the FROM field - the entire email address of the secondary account, just the username or ??

Thanks!

It should work.  I had OL2k and Exch Server and was able to send from my ISP address without any problems.  Are you selecting it from the dropdown?

You can set the default e-mail address from where you send a message from.
Use tools, e-mail accounts, and chane the settings. You can change the default e-mail account.

Here is a good workaround.  Take a look at Options and change the Reply To address on the oddball emails.  That way the replies will go to the right address.

Slink9 - thanks for your suggestions.  Couple of things....
- I don't have a dropdown to select from?  I have seen this suggestion in several postings here, but I don't have it!  When you were using OL2k, were you in Corporate/WG mode?
- I am not sure that changing the Reply-To address solves the problem.  The problem is not receiving emails to the right address, the problem is being able to select the address to send FROM.

dpctechhelp - the options you recommend, I think, are only available in Outlook Express or Outlook in Internet Mail Only mode.

Thanks all for your help.  I will be SOOO happy if I can figure this problem out.  Right now I have to go through a 2 step process to be able to reply to or send mails using my secondary account.  Its a real pain.

Are you the ES Admin?  If not, talk to that person and get your secondary address added to your ES account.  This way you should be able to send from it.

Well Inatup
I dont know how you have in your outlook but i have the same thing in my client outlook 2000 and for me works like going to tools,services, delivery and  choosing from the arrow on the right(at least in my outlook there is). and you move up the account that you want to send from should work i suppose.
Have a try
