I have outlook configured with two accounts.  One is an Exchange account and the other is a POP3 account.  I want to set the POP3 account as the default and send email via the POP3 SMTP server settings.

It depends on which version of outlook you have.  In 2007 it's Tools -> Account settings -> Set as default.  It should be similar in previous versions, but I'm not rightly sure.
