Can I set a specific account for sending a message ?

In my outlook 2003 set up I have three internet e-mail accounts, used for

different purposes. I have three different macros which I use to forward

emails to different addresses, but I want each macro to use a specific

e-mail account.

Is it possible when using automation to send messages in visual basic to

programmatically set a specific account as the account to be used when

sending the message. I know that TO, SUBJECT, CC, ADDRESS, and so on can be

set, but I haven't been able to find any visual basic code to cover setting

a specific account.

Outlook 2007 adds a MailItem.SendUsingAccount property.

For earlier versions, Outlook provides no direct way to change the account

for an outgoing message. These are known workarounds using native Outlook

functionality:

1) If the user has Outlook 2003 and is not using WordMail as the editor, you

set the sending account using CommandBars techniques. See

http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=889 for sample code.

2) If you're mainly concerned about replies to your message going to the

correct place, add the desired reply address to the MailItem.ReplyRecipients

collection.

The third-party Redemption ( http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/ ) library

adds two other solutions:

3) Set an RFC822 header property, as described at

http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/faq.htm#14

4) Set the RDOMail.Account property, as described at
