    Hi DaliSalv22!

    There are 2 ways to do this.  One is to setup the POP accounts in Outlook for each of the accounts (info and webmaster) instead of forwarding the mail to  This way, when you receive the email from that account, it will automatically know which account it was received from, and send it via that account too.

    The other way is, in Outlook, press Reply to the message, then select View > From Field.  This will bring up a field above the "TO" field that will allow you to type in an address that you would like it to be visible "From".  However, this way, it will say in the From field of the person you are sending it to that it was sent from " on behalf of".

    Hope this helps!

    Are these the only ways I will be able to do this?  I thought I read somewhere online that I can assign each folder I have to reply with the correct email address?  Did you ever hear about this?
