Outlook 2007 would like to get rid of default account

Hi Experts :-)
I have several email accounts and would like outlook to ask me which email account to use prior to sending an email. I can set the default but I am horrible at remembering to select a different account prior to sending.
Any suggestions??
Thanks a lot

    I have this same problem.



    it would really be great to have Outlook force you to select an account before sending.

    I can't understand why MS don't include this feature. Increasingly people have different accounts set up on one machine, and sending via the right one can be critical, but easily overlooked. Nice work arounds suggested, but this one could use a real solution!

Try this:

Create a "fake" email account that has an invalid username/password to a (real) SMTP server (Outlook requires that the SMTP server is real). And then set that as yourdefault account.

Now, whenever you accidentally forget to select the correct account, the default is selected and the message will try to send through the invalid account and pop up an error message. You can then go into the Outbox, select the right account, and re-send.

Actually, combine the two solutions above. So when selected the fake account, it shows the signature: Select an account before sending!

I would try just making a note in a signature file as described below; and you'll see a reminder in every e-mail at the bottom of the page.

Select Tools>Options>Mail Format (tab)>Signatures (button), then create a signature which says: SELECT ACCOUNT BEFORE SENDING!!!

Hope this will FixYa!!!

Configure ms outlook 2007 to access my office mail it shows my inbox mail but dont shows my outbox mail or sent item & also contact list .Before outlook configure i access my outlook through web mail ....


ahhhh ok you want to access your Sent mail folder and contacts which you used when you used Outlook Web Access(OWA) "outlook through web mail" to connect to your Office Exchange mail server

in order to get this you have to configure Outlook 2007 to connect to exchange server. Do the following steps
  1. if you are running outlook close it as you can not configure exchange accounts when it is running
  2. if you are running vista, xp or 7 click on the start menu and right click on email and go to properties
  3. click on email accounts
  4. select "view or change existing accounts" click next
  5. click on any of the previously configured accounts and remove them
  6. click add
  7. select microsoft exchange server click next
  8. type name of the exchange server (you must get this from your administrator) and type in your username (name which you used to use through web mail) click on next
  9. click on finish
  10. open outlook 2007 and you should see all your previous contacts and sent items
hope this helps

Cannot open Microsoft Outlook


Hi,
I think you are trying to run outlook in Compatibility mode. Which is why Outlook window isn't opening.
You can try following solutions.
1) Search Outlook in start menu search box then right click on outlook and select Open File Location. You can see the following image for this.

2) Now select Outlook and right click on that & select properties.
You can see the following images for that. cannot-open-microsoft-outlook-w3i35ygaym0a2mtgexp5w2fh-2-2.png

3) Now click on Compatibility tab and Uncheck the checkbox "run this program in compatibility mode" and at last click on Apply then OK. You can see the following image for this.

Default Mail Client


Have you ever had Outlook configured correctly to access your email server and download messages?
It sounds like you have set outlook as the default email client but you have not yet configured the email account settings within outlook so that outlook knows how to connect to your mail server online.
Please refer to this link or this link for instructions on how to do this.
Check the programs tab of Internet Options in control panel and make sure Outlook appears as the default email client.

If you follow the instructions in this tutorial you should be able to enter your administrative account and ensure that the Office Diagnostics program runs with sufficient privileges...I believe that will correct this error message...
If not, If you have correctly configured your email accounts within outlook and outlook is set as the default, please see this posting and the recommended change to correct the situation.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Forwarding emails using Outlook 2003 Professional


I use Outlook 2003 and sometimes have a similar problem with messages I forward.
It only happens though with messages I receive in an account that is not my default account and which configuration (SMTP server, security, etc.) is different from the default account's.
And it happens because Outlook forwards messages from the email account the message was received, not from the default email account.
So if you have different accounts configured in Outlook, you might want to check the SMTP servers and security configurations of email accounts other the than default account (which seems to be OK since you can send emails).
You can also direct Outlook to send your forward messages from your default account and not the account the resent message was addressed to.
Hope this helps.

Office 2007 Update - Outlook not working


Open OL 07 -> Tools -> account settings -> Under the "E-mail" tab -> Check how many account you have. You should see 2 e-mail accounts and if both are the same, delete one account which is not set as DEFAULT. Reason: When you opened OL 07, it checks if there is any e-mail account setup in Outlook Express ( Win XP) or Win Mail ( Win Vista ) and migrate the account settings.
No E-mails in blackberry :  
Open OL 07 -> Tools -> account settings -> Under the "E-mail" tab -> Select the e-mailaccount and click on CHANGE -> Go to More Settings -> Advanced -> Enable " Leave a Copy Of messages on the server"
Reason : Outlook must be downloading all the e-mails from your server when it look s for new mails on the server due to which Blackberry does not detect any -mails on the server.
