Force the 'From' account

Status
Not open for further replies.
I have several Exchange accounts in my Outlook 2010.

Is it posible to force outlook to always use the default account in the 'From' field, even if I reply on a message in a non-default account inbox?

If I for example are positioned on the 'Inbox' of a non-default account and click 'Reply' on a message, outlook sets the non-default account in the 'From' field.

Not natively, not yet, and even then not with replies.

See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/ol2010/default_acct.asp for options for force one account for all new mail. See http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/email/choose-the-account-to-send-a-reply-from/ for a macro that lets you reply (or forward) from a specific account.

Note that this is only needed for Exchange - if you use POP3 or IMAP and want ot always send from one account you can change the SMTP (outgoing) servers on the other accounts.
