:confused: I have two email accounts in OE 6. One is the primary and is the selected 'default'. However, when I reply or forward, OE selects the secondary account. It doesn't matter to which acct the mail was addressed. Only new mail gets the 'default' account address. ?? If I click the address bar I get to choose which I want but that is not what I want to do everytime. 90% of time I use the primary. I want the 'default'(primary) to be automatically selected, then if I want to use the secondary I can change to it. I have gone to tools - options - accounts and reselected my primary account/address but no joy. If I select the secondary as the default it is automatic for all three. How do I get my primary 'default' address to be automatically chosen for all three ??

Hi Old Aggie and welcome to TSG.

To set the Default identity, click on File at the top of OE. Go down the menu and click on Identities. Select Manage Identities and you'll get the window I've attached below.
The top line will be the identity that OE starts with. The second line will set the identity that is used when you click on a link to send an E-mail. When you've got it set the way you want, click OK.

Edit:
Just reread your post and realized that's probably not what you asked. :eek:
Check the Properties for each identity,Tools>Accounts>Mail tab>Properties. Make sure the Outgoing Mail is set the same as the Incoming for each account on the Servers tab.

Thanks for the "identies" fix. It worked. In fact there was no identity except "Main Identity". I put in my 'MrChipper1' and all is as I wanted.

Many thanks

Old Aggie(y) :)
