reply to - sender address


D

david

I have just moved to Outlook 2003.

My understanding might be off here.

I have several email accounts, sending and receiving is fine and my rules
work.

I have to use one default outgoing mail server for all the accounts I
believe and I have done this.

What I find is that e-mail from each account has the same 'sent from'
address, the default account email address.

In Outlook/tools/view or change existing accounts/next/ 'non default'
account/change/more settings/reply e mail box I enter the mail address of
the sending account as the reply to address.

In testing the mail still comes back to me with the default account address
as the sender.

Have I missed something?

I have done all testing from my own machine. EG I sent mail to myself from
non-default accounts back to other accounts I have set up. Is this internal
'cross mailing' the problem or is it something else? Am I seeing something
that an external recipient would not?

Many thanks

David

Are you picking the "account" button on your new messages to choose the
correct account to send from/as?
In Outlook/tools/view or change existing accounts/next/ 'non default'
account/change/more settings/reply e mail box I enter the mail
address of the sending account as the reply to address.

Why would you do that?

Ah, I see it. No I was not. I think you got it straightaway. Thank you. I
will send some tests tomorrow to see whether doing this sets that account to
a ' new default' senders address until different choice is made but if not,
I can live with that.

By that I mean whether I need to manually pick the sending account each time
no matter what the account e-mail address inbox I am working in.

With regard to the following question; it seemed to me that was the logical
way to read the instruction. In the accounts/change account details/more
settings/internet e-mail settings/general settings box, the user can name
the account, give organisation details and specify the reply address to
which the recipient will post to if they hit reply when they received the
mail.

Did I misunderstand that?

Anyway, thank you again.

I think so, although if you're replying or forwarding, it ought to select
the account to which the mail was sent....

Reply to is different from sending address - but I guess you could do this,
too.
