Before using Outlook to access more than one email account there are some caveats to this type of access.
• All email will be delivered to one inbox unless another Outlook Data File is created for the account and a rule created to move the message to the data file. If storing all in email in one data file is acceptable then a rule can be created to move the email to a folder to keep accounts separate.
• When creating or replying to an email you need to select which account the email should be sent from. This is accomplished by selecting Accounts in the mail compose windows and selecting the account to use.
Steps for Setting Up an Additional Email Account:
1. Tools 2. Email Accounts 3. Select Add a new email account click Next 4. Select POP3 5. Fill in Your Name 6. Fill in Email address for account 7. Enter User Name for account 8. Enter Password for account - check Remember password if you don’t want to login each time you send and receive email. 9. Enter Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – Information provided by ISP 10. Enter Outgoing Mail Service (SMTP) – Information provided by ISP
If this is all the information the ISP requires then click Test Account Settings to determine if everything is setup correctly. If additional information is required follow the steps below. If Outlook can perform a test send/receive with no errors then you are finished! Click Next and then Finished.
If the test fails, check your settings to make sure everything is entered correctly. Pay close attention to the username and password fields as this is usually where the problem occurs.
If the ISP requires outgoing authentication follow these steps:
1. Click on More Settings 2. Click on Outgoing Server tab 3. Check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication 4. Make sure the Use same settings as my incoming settings is selected 5. If this is all of the required information click OK and then Test Account Settings
If the ISP requires that Server Port number needs to be changed:
1. Click on More Settings 2. Click Advanced Tab 3. Change the Incoming or Outgoing Port Number to the number provided by ISP 4. Click on OK and then Test Account Settings
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.
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.
