Default two accounts using the same email address

Under Tools/Accounts, I have two accounts using the same email address. One
is with a more formal user name, and the other is less formal and is the
default. However, the more formal account seems to act as default -- when I
Forward a message, for instance, the formal one is the one that
automatically appears in the From line. How do I correct that?

It should be forwarding from the account it was sent to. Since both are
essentially identical, it probably is, but you don't realize it.

Is there any reason you need two identical accounts? If not, remove one.
If you need both, create a second Inbox and use a message rule to direct
one of the accounts to download there.

Default two accounts using the same email address

Outlook Express always uses the same account for replies and forwards
that DOWNLOADED the message The default account is used for new
messages.

If the multiple accounts are aliases for the same server POP3 account
(They have the same settings at Tools, Accounts, Mail, Properties,
Servers for both Incoming POP3 server AND Incoming Account Name), then
any one of the accounts might download messages for any of the
addresses. To see which account downloaded a message, select the Inbox
folder, then View, Columns and add the ACCOUNT column.

If this is the case, and you would like the Default account to be used
for All replies, then there is an easy fix for this. At Tools,
Accounts, Mail, Properties General, Uncheck the Include this account for
All accounts Except the Default one. Then the default account will
download all the mail and will therefore be used for replies.
