I have the same problem in both applications (outlook XP/2003 beta).
I have two E-mail accounts.
1. is an exchange account (current set as default)
2. a private email account
when I send internal mails (in the office) outlook use the exchange server...as I set (that is OK!).
but when I will send an external email (for example to firstname.lastname@example.org )
Outlook use also the exchange server to send the email and I get an error message.
The only possibility to send external mails is for me to set the email account by hand for every
The proble doesn't exist with outlook 2000.
Outlook 2000 automatically use the second email account when it see that the mail must
be send to an extrenal account.
How can I set Outlook XP / Outlook 2003 beta to do the same as Outlook 2000?
