outlook 2003 accounts button now showing up

I setup a exchange account and also setup and pop account on the same computer.
The accounts button does not show up to switch between email accounts when sending an email.

How do i get this account button to show?

Did you setup two different profiles?

Go to the Control Panel and select "Mail". Select "Show Profiles.." You should see two different profiles if you actually created one for Exchange MAPI and one for POP.  Anyway, simply select "Prompt for a profile to be used" in the radio button and select "OK".  When you launch Outlook the next time, it will ask you which profile you want to load.

Install Thunderbird for Pop. This way user don't need to switch between profiles.

Kevin, The way you are explaining i have already set it up that way, but that not the way the client wants it setup. they want to be able to use one profile and be able to send through either account while using only one profile.

anyway i figured it out, i'll explain below...

Thanks for the suggestions anyway fellas.

 I figure out that when you create a pop account directly by going through mail settings profiles, this does not allow you to get the accounts setting when you compose a new email.

You have to open outlook and setup a new pop account from within your exchange profile. Once you configure the pop account you would then get the account setting when you click new email.

There will be an option to chose which account you want the email to get sent from. This allows the user to be able to use one outlook profile and be able to send and receive emails from 2 accounts.
