Problems using pop3 account as standard account in outlook 2003 or 2007.
Posted on 2010-01-05
The problem is as follows:
Im using outlook 2003 at work. (All pc s at work are connected to an exchange server.)
Lets say the original emailadresse attached to this accound is @exchange.com
Recently i added a pop 3 account as a second account in Outlook. Lets call it @pop3.com
This new account i want to use as the standard mail account, and i have set it as the standard mail account in the outlook 2003 settings.
But, there are issues :) What happens is:
When i make a new email there is no problem. The receiver of the email will see that its sent from @pop3.com
But, everytime i want to answer to a received email, or i want to forward a received email, the recipient gets the email from @exchange.com
To avoid this problem i everytime have to manually choose, from some sort of "account button" and a drop down list generated by this button, the account @pop3.com Then i get outlook to do it "my way", the way i want.
Is there a way for me to make outlook 2003 do this automatically: using the @pop3.com account both when making new emails but also when replying or forwarding.
I have tested this both with 2003 and 2007-ver of outlook, but on both versions of the software i have to do the same manual thing to make it work.
It also seems like the problem occours when people are sending mails to the @exchange.com adresse.
Anyways, i want to use the @pop3.com som standard both when making new emails, replying and forwarding, not dependent on what account the sender of my received emails are sending emails to.
I appreciate any answers, and hopefully there is a solution for this. Because this prob has been naging me for a long time :)
