Ahh..! The above lead me to it! Thanks Igor.

Outlook 2000:
 Tools->Accounts->Mail (tab)->(Choose account)->Properties->Reply Address

 Note here that "Outlook Express" and "Outlook" are two different things.
The latter is a "professional" thing containing a Calendar, Contacts, Email,
News, Journal, Notes and Tasks just to quote "folder list". I'm not that
keen on investigating the hidden features.

Which of course works for sending single mail...

So obviously we're not out of options...

 Now all I wish for is a per-folder setting for this. ;-7
(I'm never satisfied, am I ;-). A folder contains sorted email, I use
different folders for each email list I'm reading)

Also, thanks to those who "helped" getting things right in English. "The
more you learn, the less you know" seems to be the 'usual' way :-)

Though I'm late to it:  I would appreciate it tremendously :-)

 The other ideas I read about in the "ADMINISTRIVIA" and "META" marked
threads seems as good ideas - some even better than the above. Great
thinking Chris!
