Is it possible to setup outlook so that it will receive emails from one account and send them out through a different account? If so how would I do this?

Thanks

Receiving mail and sending mail (using SMTP / POP3) are totally separate.

You collect mail from one server using POP3 and these can be user@domaina.com and then you can configure your Outlook account to send out as user@domainb.com and then send out as domainb.com.

There is nothing special to do - you will have to possibly provide credentials for both inbound mail and outbound mail but that's easy enough to sort out.

Do you need specifics?

Okay - please have a look at steps 3 and 4 from the following link:

http://www.authsmtp.com/outlook-2007/default-port.html

This shows you the inbound and outbound settings for Outlook.

The "Your Name" and "Email Address" as shown in Step 3 control what people see when you send out mail.

Step 3 Server information is your inbound email settings controlling the mail that you receive.

Step 4 controls your outbound server settings / authentication.

Hopefully that should help you - but if you need more info - please ask.
