Ok, I have an email address which is 'piggy backed' to my normal email
address so that anything from work comes through to my outllook account.
When i receive mail it comes through as being sent to it ok.

My question is how can i set it up so that my personal email doesn't show
up on outgoing mail but shows as my business mail address thus looking more
professional.?

Go into the e-mail account that you defined and put whatever you want as
your e-mail address. There are mail servers that require the e-mail address
you put in the From header matches to the e-mail address for their account
through which you send your outbound e-mail but those are rare. Even if you
specify a different e-mail address in the From header than for the account
through which you send your outbound e-mail, recipients can still see from
which mail server your e-mail originated; however, your description makes it
appear that just the username would be different and the domain for the
e-mail service you use would remain the same.

You never bothered to mention what type of mail server you use for sending
your outbound e-mails. If using Exchange, it is likely that it doesn't
matter what you specify as your e-mail address. All e-mails sent through
that Exchange account will show the company's defined e-mail address for
that account. They don't want their employees lying about what is their
e-mail address.

Several possibilities come to mind. Besides making changes directly in
Outlook, if you are using a modern MTA, you can have it configured to
'masquerade' your e-mail address. That would be trivial with Postfix,
which I doubt is your MTA. You might want to contact your SA or
technical support department for further information.
