Outlook 2010 with 2 exchange accounts sending from wrong account.

I have Outlook 2010 and I'm using it with 2 Exchange accounts.  It works great, except for the occasional email sent from the wrong account.

Here is my situation.

Account #1 is my Corporate account.  I work full time for the most part at a firm and use it only for that company.

Account #2 is my self employed/personal account.

Every now and then I happen to be in my personal inbox and I end up drafting an email for my Corporate account.  Everything is fine, it pulls up the names I want to send it to, but it comes from the wrong account.  In turn, the people I send it to end up asking me if I'm quitting or something because it is coming from a different account.

I would like to somehow keep the accounts separate.  If I'm drafting an email from my personal account, it should NOT pull up the contacts from my business account.

Anyone know how I could keep them separate, but in the same Outlook?

Thanks,

Used to be a Send As option, can't seem to locate it any longer.

Bells & Whistles for Outlook looks like the perfect solution, however, it does not seem to be working.  I have tried to contact support for the software, but they have not responded in 3 days so far.  Hope to hear back from them soon so I can get it working.

Thanks,

Sorry I left this dormant.  I will be trying this software out again, but I think it will do the job.

Thanks.
