Default Email Account

Discussion in 'Microsoft Outlook Installation' started by Richard Richter, Dec 29, 2009.

  1. I am using MS Outlook 2003 on a Windows SBS 2003 network. I do not want to
    use the Exchange server to send my email to my ISP. I want to send to the
    ISP directly from my computer. So, I open Tools/Email Accounts.... select
    E-mail View or change existing e-mail accounts and click Next>. I then
    highlight my ISP account Name and click Set as Default. It is now set as the
    default instead of the Microsoft Exchange Server. However, when I restart
    the next morning, I have to go through the same procedure since the default
    has reset to the MS Exchange Server. How can I make the ISP account the
    Default permanently?

    On Windows XP you can make a registry change that will do this. I have
    not found a solutio for Windows 7 64bit.
    Navigate to HKLM-Software-Microsoft-SmallBusinessServer-ClientSetup
    Change the Dword NoTransportOrder value to 1
    By default this Dword is not created. You will probably need to create
    it.
    To Create, right click in the right pane of Key = ClientSetup, and
    select New > Dword.
    Rename it NoTransportOrder. The default value will be set to 0
    Change the Dword NoTransportOrder value to 1

    If you don't know how to edit the registry you shouldn't be doing
    this. Ask someone who does for help.
    Backup first!
