Default Send Account that Works?

I have (3) Exchange accounts + an Outlook.com account set up in Outlook 2016. I have the main account (File > Account Settings) set as the default send account, but it appears to be a worthless setting that only works if I've launched Outlook and created a new message. Otherwise the send to just defaults to whatever folders I happen to be in at the time I click "new email".

Are there any registry hacks to get "new email" to always default to one account? I only want it changing to other accounts if I manually change it.

Thanks
