Sincere commiserations from a fellow forced-to-use-Outlook sufferer.
Yep; even hopeless-little-amateurish 'Outlook Express' allows you to set your 'reply to' addressing as you wish, while those of us tied-in to using the 'professional' Outlook are stuck with no choice.
Even more tiresome is the way it insists on quoting the previous sender's e-mail address in the message text - to the delight of spam harvesters everywhere.
Simply delightful - isn't it ?
Micro$oft - what would you like to get pissed-off with today.

| Tools->Accounts menu from
| the main window, and adding a "Mail" account. Once you add
| it, select it
| and click on "Properties". One of the options there is the "Reply
| address" (which looks like what you want). HTH anyone who is
