multiple mail accounts/default and others

I have two mail accounts set up in my OL98/WinXP. I receive mail from
both accounts but normally only send mail from my primary account
which is also set as my default. But occassionally I will get mail on
the secondary account (which is primarily an incoming mail only) that
I want to reply to. But I find that when I reply to that incoming mail
and then send/receive using that secondary (non-defualt) account the
mail is not sent and remains in my outbox. But I've also tried to
forward that message (rather than reply) and insert the reply to
address in the to: field and use my primary (default) account but even
in this case the mail is not sent and remains in my outbox.

What is the operating rules on how default and other mail accounts
intereact? Do I have to change the default to the secondary account
when I'm downloading mail from it to be able to reply to those
messages and then change the default back to my primary account?

Do later versions of Outlook operate this same way? If there is a
cleaner way of dealing with multiple mail accounts maybe I could
finally be convinced to upgrade.

I remember dealing with older versions of Outlook that only allowed you to 
send from the account that received the message.  Outlook 2003 does allow 
you to switch accounts--I use this feature all the time.  So yes, they fixed 
the problem.

In the interim, I'd bet that the reason your messages aren't being sent has 
something to do with the SMTP server that's configured on the secondary 
account.

Having problem of Outlook not receiving new e-mails
I have been using Outlook for over 1 year with Comcast Broadband. Suddenly last week, I received a message that Outlook 2000 was experiencing a problem when receiving new e-mails and was going to shut down. I re-opened Outlook and it looked different and then it asked for me set up a profile and I canceled it. But after that window coming up a couple of times after it shut down, I decided to put in a new name and then I could not get to my old e-mails and it acted like a new set up. Then I really got frustrated. I was eventaully able to get back to my old e-mails and have been able t...

The Links from e-mails don't work

Controlling multiple TCP connections from Outlook 2003 clients
I've noticed that Outlook 2003 clients can have multiple TCP connections to the mailbox store on Exchange. As the following web link claims: http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/46319/46319.html "This behavior is by design. Outlook can open multiple connections to parallelize its data communications with the Exchange server. The actual number of connections will vary according to the version of Outlook that you're using and the mode in which you're using it. For Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 in Cached Exchange Mode, you'll see four connections for the mailbox, ...

How do I setup an SMTP gateway / smart host for Exchange 5.5 internet bound mail
My current setup has a Windows NT 4.0 Exchange 5.5 server setting on our company LAN behind a Microsoft ISA Server. The Exchange server's Internet Mail Connector binds to (I assume this is the proper terms) port 25 on the ISA server for inbound and outbound Internet Mail. Our company has finally upgraded to a new Cisco Pix Firewall which we are able to setup a DMZ on. The suggestion by our ISP is to setup an SMTP gateway in the DMZ and have our internal Exchange server send mail to it destined for the Internet. I am aware that most of the work for making the connections from the SMTP ...

Catch all outgoing email on Exchange and send copy to specified account
Hi all. I have been asked to find out if there is anyway to configure our mail server to catch all outgoing email from certain email accounts on our Exchange 2003 Enterprise server and forward a copy of this email to a specified account, also on the Exchange server.

Mail Merge Printing collated
When I print a mail merge (I don't use it for mailings and envelopes), Publisher prints out the first 5 records as an individual document then the next 5 as a seperate document, and so forth. Since I often need to make multiple copies of these documents, I end up having to collate them by hand. How can I get Publisher to print the entire merge as one document before printing the second, third, copy? I believe when I had P'03 it would print that way, but when I upgraded to '07 this problem started. You can't... Maybe later with a service pack these printing bugs will b...

Customizing Excel's Border Defaults

Account Balance Weirdness
Me bad boy. Haven't balanced my checking account since March 2004. But everything through March had been balanced/reconciled. Now I go in with my April 2004 bank statement to start balancing April 04 and find the opening balance is too high by about $9,000! I have transactions going all the way back to the early 1990's, but 91-93 looks weird. A $150 monthly transfer is the only transaction in the register for those years. I don't recall seeing that before, but it's been years since I looked that far back. At this point my choices seem to be: 1. Enter a correcting balanc...
