Outlook 2003 :: Forwarded messages are from wrong account
Posted on 2004-08-18
In Outlook 2003, I have about a dozen different POP3 accounts and I am attached to an Exchange server.
When I forward emails, they often change the "from" account to a different account than the one that the message was sent to. If I "reply" to the message, the account is correct. This only happens when forwarding. Also, the incorrect account that shows up in the forwarding is not the default account or even always the same account.
So, assuming I have accounts email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com. I get an email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. I hit reply, and the "From" field shows email@example.com. Everything is good here. But if I hit forward, the "From" field shows firstname.lastname@example.org (which often causes relaying rejections from my server). What's up with this?
