Multiple Email Addresses & Outlook

I am sure there must be a sensible answer to this.

I have several email addresses..but want to use only one of them to send from. However my ISP is NTL (dont ask). Outlook blocks me from sending with any other email than the ntl.com one. How can I receive from all but send only from one which is NOT the ntl.com one

Many thanks

Try this: In Outlook/Tools/Email Accounts, check the 'View or change existing e-mail accounts' button. In the list that is in the next window, highlight the required account and set it as the 'Default' account.

I'm with NTL, and I find that you can send all sorts of different emails (eg yahoo.co.uk) and not just ntl.com. They also allow the use of SMTP addresses other than the NTL one - something that some other ISPs don't allow you to do. So, I suspect that the problem is in the Outlook setup rather than with NTL.

What error message do you get from Outlook?

When you say you can only send ntl.com, are you referring to the end of the email address (eg [email protected]) or the end of the smtp server (eg mail.ntl.com)?
