Hello Everyone:

I am posting this because I noticed that when I am in Outlook 2002 that I can no longer open a New Message, type it, and then select which of my 4 Email addresses that I can send it from. I know that I had Office XP on Emmanuel, which was my XP pro machine, and it had this function, but on Oddessy, which is my MCE PC, it does not appear.

Is there a way to get this function back?? If so, How?

Anyone's help would be greatfully appreciated :)

Brian

don't know if this will work for you since i've got 2003 but when i open a new mail...i can click on the "options" drop down arrow and add a "from" field into the mail

then i can type an address there or select one from my address book and it will send the mail from that person...granted...this option could also only be present because of my email setup (i've got exchange...so who knows)

**Brian**,

Is the Accounts drop down box no longer on the toolbar? I have Outlook 2003 with 3 accounts set up in it, and the Accounts drop down box is on the Toolbar, just as it is in dsenette's picture. I have to ask an obvious question, just to rule it out - you do have more than one email account set up on this PC?

On my home computer, I have my personal account, my business account, and another one. If I'm sending an email to someone at the office, or the office mailing list, or to a vendor or something, I use that accounts button to select my business account. That way it looks more professional, plus I don't get business crap sent to my personal account.

I've done some research on this, and everything I've read says that Accounts button is not there unless there are multiple accounts set up in Outlook, which is why I asked that question.

Sari:

I could not see the Accounts button because my mom (who had this machine before giving it to me) only used ONE account, hence the button was not needed. I had to add a toolbar, using this:


Add a button, menu, or command
Do one of the following:

Add a button or menu to a toolbar

On the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then click the toolbar you want to display.
On the toolbar, click the Toolbar Options arrow .
Point to Add or Remove Buttons, and then click Customize.


When completed, I was able to see the accounts button, and I had to tell it to display the buttons in 2 rows - which is how Emmanuel was configured.

I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all the help - I am learning so much - it is a pleasure to have such talented people here :)

Thank YOU for all your help guys and gals :)
