Mail being sent "on behalf of" the sender through another account set up on Outlook

Hi,

I'm using Outlook 2002 and have 6 accounts set up on it. All of a sudden, my emails are being sent with the following in the "From" field.  "user1@domain.com on behalf of user2@domain2.com". Has anyone any idea why Outlook has started to do this and how I can change it?

Thanks very much for any help :-)

You can choose which account to send from in the toolbar of you message. It will then use the account you select at that time. It is a button that says Accounts and is directly next to the Send button.

Are you planning to send email using the same account always. Try making that account as default and check if that would help

When you send a new message, reply or forward, click on accounts in the window that comes up and select the account you want to use to send

Thanks for you answer. Unfortunately I do not always use the same account, that's exactly the problem... I will be sending a lot of emails from the different accounts and therefore do not wish that a recipient sees the name of another account shown in the "From" field.

I'm not sure which window you are talking about where I can click on accounts. When I'm sending a message, I put the email address I want to send the mail from in the "From" field. And then I have the problem that I initially described.

By the way, my Outlook always sets the top account in the list as default. Maybe this is the problem. I've noticed that the "From" field always contains "default@email.com on behalf of intendedsender@email.com". Is there anyway of setting no default?
