Wrong Email account chosen on replies

Specs: Windows 7

I am using Office Outlook 2007 on my Windows 7 Machine.

Currently, I have 2 e-mail accounts set up on the machine, which I have labelled "home" and "office". I am using the same laptop to send e-mails through both my home and office e-mail servers (depending on where I am). I currently have the "office" account set up as my default account.

Here's the fun part: When I create a new e-mail, the default account that Outlook is sending from is if the "office" account. When I reply to an e-mail or forward a received e-mail, Outlook wants to try and sent through the "home" account, and I have to manually change which account it's sending from.

Am I missing a setting that I need to change?

The "reply" account by default will be the account to which the email was sent.

Thank you...

I figured it out, however... I simply turned off the "home" account's ability to receive messages. The work account can receive from anywhere. That way it always defaults to send from "work".

Thanks again.
