Outlook 2010 default "send from" address


I have two email accounts in Outlook 2010, one IMAP and one POP.
I want to set it so that whenever I send a new email (no matter what folder I'm in at the time), it should go automatically from the POP address.

I set that account as default, but when I am in any of the folders of my IMAP account, when I click New Email it goes from the IMAP account.

Is there a way to fix this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
