Sending/Receiving

Hello,

I just upgraded a user to XP Pro with Office 2003, in a SBS 2000 enviroment.
The user is setup using Exchange and a POP3 e-mail account. The problem I'm
having is (which didn't exist before the upgrade from Windows 2000 with
Outlook 2000) is when he sends e-mails through Outlook 2003 which e-mail
account is selected as the default mail when viewing e-mail accounts, he
can't send from the other one. But if he changes the default he can send.
So, if the Exchange e-mail account is selected he can only send e-mails
internally, if the POP3 is selected he can only send outside not internally.

Thanks Craig

I suggest you post in microsoft.public.backoffice.smallbiz2000, as SBS does
myriad things to Outlook's settings.

However, that said, you and your users will be *much* better off if you get
the internet mail services out of the clients - and make the server handle
it all. Ditching POP entirely would be the best way to go, but even using
the POP connector included with SBS would be a vast improvement over your
current configuration.
