Default Source Email Address in Outlook 2016
Posted on 2016-08-19
I have Outlook 2106 and my Outlook profile has 2 email accounts. There is an Exchange account and a POP3 account. The POP3 account is the default account. If the Inbox associated with the Exchange account is the active current folder and I open up a new message, the source address displayed is the email address that is configured in the Exchange account. The Exchange source address is the default sources address, despite the fact that in account settings, the POP3 account is set as the default. There's a "FROM" button that gives me the option of switching the source address for that message to the email address associated with the POP3 account, but I want the POP3 source address to be the default source address every time I open a new message, regardless of which Inbox is the active current folder.
Does anybody know how I can do this?
Outlook 2013 on my other computer is working the way I want as described above. I've checked every setting I can think of in Outlook 2013 to figure out what I need to change in 2016 but I'm not having any luck.
Thanks in advance for your help.
