I have 4 email accounts that I use and when I use mail merge there doesn't seem to be any rime or reason to which account it uses to send from.  I have one set as the default, which is my work account and the one I want to use, but Mail Merge will send from any of the accounts and frequently sends for my personal account.  Is there any way to correct this so Mail Merge is only sending from my work account.  As I mentioned, it is already set up as the default.  Thanks.

Setting the default Account is not enough. In addition, you need to set the default Data File (it's on the "Data Files" tab on the "Account Settings").
