    When sending internal mail and default is the exchange server it works fine. But if you are sending an internet mail it trys to go thru the exchange server also. If you list internet mail as default it does not send exchange mail. How do I make it start with one service and if it does not go to automatically use the other service. :confused:

    That will help, but what if you have a message you wanted to send both exchange and internet. What do you do? Seems like in Outlook 2000 we did not have to choose which account it send from.

    As far as I know, you can only SEND from one account per message and you need to specify what account that you want to send from. It sounds like you wanted it to try to send from Exchange and if it fails then try to send from another account?

    Outlook should be sending and receiving on both accts, no matter which is the default. If this isn't the case, I think you've got a more serious problem, tho I wouldn't know how to resolve it.

    All email (internal and pop) will be sent with the "from" field showing the default email address. This is true even if you're repling to an email that was sent to the non-default acct. But per JimiT's pic, you can use the Accts option to have individual emails be sent through the non-default acct. I don't know of a simpler way than that.
