I have my work email forwarded to my personal email account which I then check using Outlook. When I reply to people I would like to be able to have it look like I am replying from my work email address.

Hi Shurafa,

I just want to add that the settings in war1's response may not be there if you use an Exchange server, so you will have to do it manually.

When you create ~ reply to an e-mail, click the Options button and set the reply to there.

Sorry, didn't look at your post closely enough. Since this is your personal account war1's reply is correct.
