How to change account used for replies from default

Hi

I am using OL2007 on exchange 2007, have pretty minimal VBA skills (mainly
in excel).

I have several email addresses (a,b,c) which are all funnelled via my
exchange account (d). The problem is that when i reply to an email sent to
account a, OL automatically uses my exchange account (d).

Is it possible to change this using vba so that outlook chooses the same
account to send that the email was sent to?

thanks

David M

If the message was retrieved (pulled) using an SMTP account, the replies
will be sent using the right account - on the low level, the message gets
stampted with the name and id of the accoutn used to retrieve the message.
If you simply forward (push) the messages from your POP3/IMAP/etc server to
your Exchange account, there is no way for Outlook/Exchange to know which
account should be used.

But in Outlook the correct email address shows up in the 'sent to' field - ie
the address that the sender used, which is then forwarded on. So why can't
outlook see that address?

Why should it? If you were BCC'ed, your e-mail address would not even be in
the recipeints list.

Ok, but is there a way to get outlook to ask me which account to use to help
me use the right account?
