If you go into the account settings it should give you the option to set a paricular email account as the default - ensure your pop account is set as the default account and that should do the job (may need a restart of Outlook).

Make sure you highlight account and click "Set as default"

My fault in that case you can not perform this action in Outlook.com  it was designed to be synchronize to an email client.  Per this article Change default email client to Outlook.com

The only thing you can do is perform the action in the example below.
