Bogus default account in Outlook 2003 - wins and loses


T

I have many email accounts and use all of them. I used to occasionally
send email from the wrong account because of Outlook's "default
account" feature.

It seems that Outlook does not have a way to "disable" the default
account, but I came up with the bright idea to just set up a bogus
account as the default. Works like a charm. Almost.

For one thing, if I forget to choose an account to send from, the
outgoing email will just silently sit in my outbox until I check
either the Outbox folder or the send/receive progress dialog (which I
leave open permanently). It would be nice if Outlook would bark if I
forgot to choose a real sending account.

Worse though, is that it seems there is no way to choose an account
when setting up a meeting. The meeting "organizer" is automatically
the default account and it can't be changed.

I'm a programmer and I've done a bit of VBA programming (mostly in
Excel), so if anyone has a suggestion on how to code around these two
issues, I'd appreciate it!

Thx
