Hi!
  i am using 2 accounts. One when i am at the office and the other one when i am working at home. Now, my pop settings are the same but i am using a SMTP different. My problem is that when i am replying an email from home, i get a message and i see that Outlook didn't take the account i have set as default, so it can't send my email.

Anybody know what could i do?

I am assuming you have both accounts in one profile and are using Outlook XP?

Next to the Send button in your reply, click the Accounts pull-down menu and choose the account you want to send the email from.  When you hit the Send button, it should use the settings for that account.
