Sending from default account on replying from other accounts?


B

Boppy

Hi guys, I have a new email address that I have set as my default
account (OL 07). When I send a new message, it automatically goes from
this new email address. However, I am still receiving mail into my
older accounts and when I reply to these I'd like to ensure they are
also sent from my new email address.

I've had a look at the various rules, but the only one that deals with
replies is to reply using a template, and it just automatically sends
a blank message without waiting for me to type anything.

I'm not sure if this is possible, but it would be great if I could
avoid having to manually set the account to send replies from.Thanks
in advance for advice on how to achieve this.

if you will not be using the addresses on the old accts, change the address
on the acct to your new address and change the smtp server to use the same
sending info as with the new acct.

Thanks for replying.

Because I use MsgTag my outgoing server is already the same for all
accounts. I just need to tell Outlook somehow to send the reply from
my new default account. Is that possible?

go to tools, accounts, and in each of the old acct change the email address
used in the from field.

Sorry to be dense, but I cannot see where that option is. When I click
on Account settings, I can see all my different email accounts,
through which I still need to receive incoming mail.

Dbl-clicking on one brings up:

User Info: Name and Email address - this has the old account details

Account type: Pop3
Incoming mail server: (e-mail address removed)
Outgoing mail server: 127.0.0.1

Logon Information
That old account's username and password

The "require logon using SPA" box is not ticked.

Then clicking on More Settings gives me 4 tabs: General, Outgoing,
Connection and Advanced.

"General" has that old account's name, and the two boxes under Other
User Information are blank. I've tried typing the new name into the
Reply Email box but this doesn't cause replies to come from my new
account.

As with my new account, there are no boxes ticked under "Outgoing
Server".

Connection has only a check in the "connect via Lan" box.

Advanced has the same port and server settings as my new account.

Do you think you could post a screenshot of where the "From" field can
be found in Outlook 07?

Thanks again for helping me with this.

Sorry - now I have to set up my colleagues' Outlook 03 to send from
their new email addresses while still receiving incoming mail into
their old addresses. Their outgoing servers will remain the same, and
I have typed their new email addresses into the boxes you have
indicated in your graphic, but replying to messages sent to their old
addresses brings up the old email address. Are settings different in
03?

Thanks again,
Jo

Do not change the bottom address, only the top one. The top address is the
sender address and will be where your recipients see the mail originating.
The bottom "address" isn't really an address but is whatever username the
POP server requires for you to access the old POP mailbox.

they are slightly different, but not enough that you shouldn't be able to
figure it out. Make sure you put in a reply to address so replies will go
to the new acct.
