Outlook 2003 sends email from wrong account
Posted on 2005-05-05
- I have Outlook 2003 running with more than one POP account.
- I DON'T have an Exchange Account.
I have two accounts setup in Outlook 2003. For arguments sake lets say they are firstname.lastname@example.org (default) and email@example.com. I have firstname.lastname@example.org set as the default email address and in the Accounts Settings they are listed in that order.
Even though I have email@example.com set as the default AND I select this account to send from when writing a new email it always sends the email from the 2nd account (firstname.lastname@example.org). I have setup both reply addresses correctly and have recreated the same setup on another PC using Outlook 2000 and Outlook Express. Both of these other applications send email correctly, however Outlook 2003 seems to have a serious issue with it.
For the life of me I can't seem to find a way out of it. I'm no numpty when it comes to problem solving, but even Microsoft Technical Support (why I contacted them I have no idea!) haven't got a clue and told me to use Outlook Express!!!!!
Can you help? It is quite urgent hence offering 500 points. I also think its an bug in Outlook 2003 even though Microsoft say its not!
