HI All

I am trying to set up a macro so that when i press send i get prompted to select which email account i would like to send from. I am supposed to send emails from my works generic account rather than my personal one but i have the memory of a goldfish and hardly ever do this! I have read that you can change your default email address but i dont want to do this either as i will end up getting any personal non work related emails back to the teams generic account (again because of my dodgy memory!)

any help is much appreciated

Thanks

Sean

We have a macro that always uses a specific account - you can add it to a button on the ribbon or tweak it to ask. Outlook 2010, Multiple Accounts and the Default Account | Slipstick Systems

Thanks for that. i have tried to use this macro but when i click the button it does nothing. Where it says to check the account name in account setting wjhen i do this all that is displayed is Microsoft Exchange Server.

Whewn viewing my inboxs i have both my account and the teams generic account underneath. If i am composing a message i can select the generic account using the from field but i always forget!

I currently have a macro in place so when i click send a pop up appears asking if i would like to encrypt my mail. I could do with something similar to this but where it asks what account i would like to send my email from.

Am i asking for a bit much here?!

Thanks

the popup is doable, I'll take a look at it this evening (I have a deadline I need to meet right now, although macros are more fun than what I need to do for the deadline. :)) You'll probably need to use the sendonbehalf properly for a shared account - SendUsingAccount uses accounts configured in Outlook.
