I have two accounts in Outlook - a gmail.com one and a Microsoft Exchange one. The gmail.com account is the default one.

When I compose a new email, regardless of which inbox I'm in, it defaults to the gmail.com account. But when I reply to an email in the Microsoft Exchange inbox, it uses the Microsoft Exchange account and not the gmail.com one. How can I change this behavior? How can I make it so replies from one account get sent out (by default) with another account?

You can't. That's not the way Outlook was designed. You can change the account yourself if you want to at the time you send the message, but Outlook should always reply using the account over which the messages was received.

Could I change the Exchange account such that it'd send emails out through an SMTP server of my choosing instead of through the Exchange server?

Huh? Exchange and SMTP are two completely different mail transport types. What is it you are trying to do here?

I am aware of that. What I was curious about is if I could change the protocol that I'm using to send email without changing the protocol I'm using to receive mail.

ie. you can change the protocol the incoming mail server uses from POP3 to IMAP without changing anything about the outgoing mail server. I was curious if something similar could be done for Exchange. I mean, why does Exchange care about what protocol the outgoing server is using when neither POP3 or IMAP do?

No. Exchange is a proprietary system that must use its own mail transport.Russ Valentine
