Outlook sending email "on behalf of"

I have had multiply accounts in Outlook before.  But I added a 2nd account as IMAP in Outlook and it sends it "On behalf of" my primary account.  How can I send it, so that it goes out as its own account and not on behalf of?

The primary account is set up as POP3.

Thanks,
JP

In Outlook, after you hit 'New Mail' Click 'Options'->'From'
Then select the account in the From line and it will send from that account (not on behalf of). The account has to be in the profile you are using.

You need to manually set the secondary account as default account (in place of the primary account) everytime prior to sending an email from the secondary account.

Ths is incorrect. The from button exists exactly so you don't have to do that. If you had read the first answer in this thread you would have seen that. I use the from field all the time.

It is working again - not a clue why; and, yes very good pointer about selecting the account to send the email from.
Thanks.
