I have Outlook 2007 and two email addresses: my primary pop3 account and a second, forwarding, address which I ask most of my correspondents to use.

I would like to be able to use Outlook to "send from" the second address, and to have that address appear as the "sent from" address when anyone receives a mail from me.

At present anyone can use the second address and it will arrive in my inbox.

It's just the "sent from" value which is proving difficult to achieve.

I have tried setting up a new account in account settings but I can't do so with the second address, no matter which password I use.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

When in the Reply or Forward mode, just click on the "Accounts" icon and select the account that you want the current email to be sent from.

Thanks but I can't register the second account with Outlook so the "acbuttes" button doesn't appear.

If you can't register it within Outlook, then how can you send from it?

What stops you from adding this second account to Outlook?

I can't send from it. It's a forwarding address and I can only receive mails addressed to it. I'd like to be able send from it too, but I can't register the forwarding address as a second address with Outlook.

Can you provide a link to this "forwarding address service" as I have never used one?

It's a domain name which I use to forward mail to.

I can't register it with Outlook because I don't have password. If I ever had one and I've forgotten it then that may be the problem.

The one for my regular email address doesn't work.

Without a password, you are not going to be able to do what you want.
