Would you like to set a different sender in Microsoft Outlook? Here we show you how to do it..

When using multiple email addresses in Outlook, it is important to pay attention to the sender. When you reply to an e-mail, the sender is automatically the e-mail address that received the e-mail. However, if you write a new email to someone, the wrong email account may be used. But don't worry: that can be changed very easily.

Outlook: Change sender account

In Outlook, the mail address is automatically set as the sender whose mailbox you are currently in. If you are in the inbox of [email protected], this will be set as the sender, regardless of who you are sending to. If you want to use [email protected] instead, this can easily be changed: Create a new email. To the right of the " Send " field you will find the recipient line next to " To ". Above it should be the line " From ". Click on it to select a mail address stored in Outlook as the sender.

You can use the "From" setting to change the e-mail address from which the mail is sent.

By the way: this only works if you use multiple email accounts in Outlook. If information is only stored for one account, this is always used as the sender. If you want to specify a different sender, you have to add another account to Outlook..

Outlook: Change the default sender

If you always want to send all emails from the same address, the option of the standard sender is available. Follow our step-by-step instructions or take a look at the brief instructions .

A window with the options will now open. Scroll down quite a bit until you see the " Send Messages " category . Do not confuse this with the " Compose Messages " category , which can be found above. Under "Send messages" you will find the point " Always use the standard account when composing new messages ". Check this and confirm with " OK ". Your default e-mail address will now always be used as the sender.
