Outlook 2002 - Changing Your Default Account

outlook 2002


Whenever you compose a new message, your e-mail software will automatically select the e-mail address from which the message will be sent. If you have set up more than one address, then new mail will normally be sent from the oldest account (referred to as the default account). While you will have the option to change the sending e-mail address while you are composing the new message, you may prefer to automatically send new messages from a different account.

The following steps will assist you in changing your default account in Outlook 2002:

1. Open Outlook 2002.

2. Click on Tools and select Email Accounts.

3. Select View or change existing e-mail accounts and click Next.

4. In the E-mail Accounts window, highlight the e-mail address that you wish to set as the default account.

5. Click on the Set as Default button. The word (Default) will appear next to the account which you have selected.

6. Click on Finish to close the E-mail Accounts window.
