Hotmail stores NNTP posts in OE?

I have outlook express set up to check my 5 or so email accounts, including my hotmail account, and also to work with my usenet server.  The strange thing is that when I post things on usenet, everything goes into my hotmail's sent items.  I logged into hotmail's website and checked, and the posts are all there on hotmail's server.

Does anyone know why this happens and how I can make it stop?  I'm not even using my hotmail address when I post, so I don't see why they should go there instead of into my normal sent items folder.

Hi grantemsley,

Goto the menu bar > Tools > Accounts,
look at the accounts, look at "mail (default)",
Press on your main account where you want your emails sent from and press on "Set as Default"

Hope this helps
