I am unable to find any written material on this subject, even at Microsoft Outlook Express site. Maybe you can help.
My boss's Outlook Express has the defaults set where we want them. He has two email addresses delivering to OE. One is set as the default yet whenever he replies to his email, or wants to send an email, it will always pick up the other email address in the "from" line. Gary is his default and sales is the other. No matter what he does, the computer automatically chooses sales as the from person rather than the default of Gary. This has to be manually forced everytime and then it does not always stick.
Also, when he wants to change the font and size of his email, the default will not stick. Even when he manually sets it for each and every email, as soon as he types the first letter, it reverts back to whatever it wants as the default instead of what we want the default to be.
It is possesed. It does what it wants. I do not understand. He thinks it is something I programed it to do but that is not the case. No matter what I set the defaults to, it does what it wants. And when you check it...the defaults you placed are still there, just not doing what it is supposed to do.
