Default send account is not working on reply & forward messages



I am using outlook 2007. I have one exchange account, 2 pop3 accounts &
hotmail account in my outlook profile.
I receive all the emails in the archive inbox folder. I set up one of the
pop3 accounts as the default account to send out emails using account
settings. When I click new message, it automatically uses that default
account but when I hit reply or forward it always uses the exchange account
(very strange) and I have to pick the default account manually when I reply &
forward evrey message.
I tried everything to get that pop3 default account to work on reply and
forward but no luck. I can definetly use your help.

which account is collecting the mail? Outlook normally sends replies using
the account that received it.

you are correct, outlook is using the account that receives to reply or
forward. can I bypass that? to have outlook reply and forward only using the
default "send" account?
