Outlook 2007 and Multiple POP accounts

I have a client that uses POP for email.  He has more than one account for various businesses and he asked to have them accessible from a single location.  We added the 2nd account to his existing email profile and created a rule to move mail as it was delivered to a separate inbox for the 2nd account.  However, when he sends mail in response to or even a new message it goes out as the 1st account on behalf of the 2nd, which is not the required result.  We want messages sent from the 1st or 2nd account only to reflect that account and have no mention of the other.  I will confirm with him but he was directed to select the account and/or to change the from address before sending messages.  Hopefully this is not just a case of user error.  Any suggestions?

That's how you choose the from address, yes.
Now, what exactly is the question?

The information that I have so far is that he is selecting the account to send from but the message goes out on behalf of the other one.  We just want it to go out showing the account that is selected.  I am yet to get more info from the user and will update the question once I have confirmed my assumptions.

That's weird.

It was finally determined that the user was changing the from address and not selecting the account that he wanted to send mail from.  A technical issue did not exist.
