OL2003 will not use default email account for sending emails

I have copied the following from an earlier message within this group.
A recommendation was posted, but did not help the original poster nor
myself in resolving the issue.  I have noticed this problem within the
past 24 hours and can not overcome.  Here is the original post from a
couple months ago:

:>I am running Office Pro 2003 SP1
:>I have read several postings and accept that Outlook will reply to
:>mails via the account the was received from. However, i have added a
:>new account and set it as default, but mail still gets sent from my
:>other account.
:>This even happens when i select the account from within the new
:>mail... the message says 'This message will be sent via
:>mail.mydefaultdomain.com'.. but its actually gets sent via the non
:>default account..
:>How do i sort this as it is really annoying.. 

The primary difference between my plight and the original poster's is
the fact my default email account has been used for years (i.e., I did
not just recently add it).  I have attempted changing the default
account and while it works like a charm for the different email
accounts I have set up, when I select my primary email POP3 provider
as my default account (again, which I have used for years and various
iterations of OL have accepted as my default from email address)
OL2003 will now not use the selected account for the "from" email
address-- even when this account is manually selected from the list of
eligible accounts from which to use within an email being composed.

Please help!

Changing Outlook's default "Save As" directory
Is there any way to change the default "Save As" directory under Outlook 2000 through the registry? What is happening is that users are opening attachments, editing them and then saving them using "File\Save As" . The problem here is that the default "Save As" directory is supposedly some randonly generated folder that starts with "OLK" and has a couple of numbers added to it. (OLK52). The problem with this is that alot of the times they cannot locate the attachment to work with again, plus the fact is that we have DeepFreeze installed on these PC&#...

OL2003 Rules
Rule made to move messages from the Global Address List Address Book, on this machine only, move to a specific folder, quit working when Exchange server upgraded to 2003. Deleted and reintitiated the rule. No joy. Similar rules for mail from individual accounts on the GAL work well, but these do not specify movement from an address book. (The idea here is to, instead of filtering messages out of the inbox, filter internal mail out and put that in a priority location) Any suggestions welcome. Thanks. For what version of Outlook? In case of Outlook 2003 have you tried deleting the oa...

pop3 connector delivering duplicate emails after SP1 install
Installed SBS 2003 SP1 over night (includes Ecxhange 2003 SP1) We have been using the POP3 connector to collect mail from a Global Mailbox and emails are delivered to recipients. After the upgrade, the POP3 connector is delivering duplicate emails when it reads the To: and Cc: fields. Emails that come in where recipients are in both the To: and Cc: fields, are duplicated and delivered multiple copies, depending on the number of recipients. e.g an external user sends an email to usera@mymail.com (To: field )and CC's userb@mymail.com. usera@mymail.com - receives 2 emails userb@myma...

What functions should I use?...please assist.
I have a problem with Excel. I have a worksheet with two columns. In one column is a date when an event was due, and in the other, when it was completed. What I want to do is to easily figure out how many items were completed after they were due. What I would like to do is have Excel recognize that one date (the completed date) is after the due date, and if that were true, to generate the number 1 in a third column, in the same row for that event. After this I would simply sum the 1s in this third column to get the result. What would the function or series of functions be to recognize t...

Open 'new email' in outlook (using word as editor, as per normal)
I have a field in each record of a continuous form that contains an email address. There is a command button next to it which, when clicked, should open outlook to email that address. Like what happens in a normal email hyperlinks I can see two ways of doing this: 1) Turn the field to a hyperlink. This works perfectly, however it makes it a pain to edit the link. 2) Use the sendobject command in VBA / a macro.

Daylight saving problems when using winapi's timezone functions.
Hi, I get times from a server given in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time or Universal Time Coordinated), that is similar to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) but not adjusted to daylight saving time. That is, during summer, UTC differs one hour from London time, since UK uses daylight saving during summer. The application I develop is used worldwide so I can not assume or hardcode anything. This should not be a problem since winapi have functions to handle this. I do the following. The function I use to convert UTC time to local time (New York time for me) looks like this: COleDateTime Conver...

Using Enter Key to move from field to field
I've created two forms in the same database. In the first form I must use Tab to move through the fields -- the second form allows the use of the Enter Key. How can I get the first form to accept the Enter Key? Right now if I push Enter by mistake in the first form it erases the text (but if I do "undo" the text is restored.). I can't find where to set this. FYI - I have a totally different database where the form also allows the Enter Key to be used to move from field to field.

Email archiving #3
