wrong email address in header

I have a computer running OL 2003, no Exchange server, 5 pop mail accounts.  Problem is that the default mail account (jdoe@defaultaccount.com) is set, and when I send an email to myself, it shows my name with that email address.  But, if I send the message outside, the recipient gets my message, it says my name, and following my name it says jdoe@oldemailaccount.com.  If the recipient replys to the message, it comes to the correct account.  I have triple checked the default account settings, and there is NO reference to the old email address in there.  The old email account is still in the list, but is not chosen as the default, and I have made sure that the message sent to the outside has the right account chosen for sending.  Just can't figure out where this old address is coming up.  If I open the message and go to View and Options, it looks like I am sending from the wrong account, with the reply address set to the right account.  Here is what i get...
