Account preference in Outlook 2003


R

Robert Feldman

I have set up 2 accounts in Outlook 2003: a company Exchange account and a
personal POP3 account. I set the POP3 account as my default but for no
apparent reason the Exchange account seems to become the default. I want the
POP3 account to be the permanent default. Even while the POP3 account is a
the default (before it spontaneously changes back to the Exchange account),
when I reply to an e-mail, the sending account is always the Exchange one
and I need to change this manually for every reply.

How do I make the POP3 account the permanent default e-mail account?

Thanks,

Robert

Are you using SBS2003? It's because of the logon script. If you aren't the
exchanger admin make a copy of your profile in Control panel, mail and give
it a unique name. Use the copy, not the one created when you logged on.

If mail still sends from the exchange account, make sure the pop account is
properly authenticating.

Dianne,

Thanks - that doesn't work. Server is apparently SBS2003. Have made copy of
mail profile and am using it but it makes no difference. Logging off and on
resets Exchange to default e-mail account.

Try this reg key -

Key: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\ClientSetup
Value Name: NoTransportOrder
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

if it fails the admin can change the logon script.

Wonderful! Thanks so much - reg addition solves the order problem.

However, when I reply to an e-mail to the POP3 three account, the reply is
automatically from the Exchange account and I need to change this manually
everytime. Is there a fix?

Also, can I get Outlook Web Access to use my POP3 e-mail as the reply
address?

Thanks,

Robert

Not sure about the pop reply problem - but the only way owa can use the pop3
address is if the admin adds it as the SMTP address. See
http://www.slipstick.com/problems/defaultacct.htm#smtp for instructions.
