    Which default account? (Outlook 2003 SP2)

    In my Outlook 2003 SP2, I used a rare opportunity to take my laptop to the office. I have an account setup on there to be able to send & receive email from there or from home.

    Now that I have the laptop back home, when I create a new email, all is well, it goes via the default account. But if I reply to or forward an email, it still is picking up the office account.

    I have gone into email accounts and reset the default account, like I have done many times before. What am I missing or forgetting to do?

    Thanks,

    --Jake000

    You may have a corrupt profile. Instead of using multiple e-mail accounts in Outlook, I prefer to set up two different profiles and have Outlook prompt me when I open as to what profile I want to use. This way there is less confusion over the account being used and specify different providers (i.e., sttp at home and exchange at work). Here is the MS KB which will help you create profiles:

    KB 289467 - Creating Outlook Profiles

    Hope this helps.... trish

    Hi Trish,

    Thanks for that tidbit. I had no idea I could choose profiles like that. I have to experiment with it, but I see a lot of potential here.

    Thanks again!
