Thank you for the reply.
I think I confused my question
Let me put it like this i have 6 emails below configured in my windows mail.
asdf at apple,.com
qwert at orange,.com
xyz at apple,.com (configured as the default email in windows mail)
jkl at grapes,.com
qwerty at red,.com
vbn at green,.com
I receive emails on all these accounts (email)
now when I receive an email on qwerty at red,.com and when I reply to it, in the reply window in the " from " field the email id is that of the default email configured - xyz at apple,.com
to give a reply to the email received on qwerty at red,.com from qwerty at red,.com i have to select it from the drop down list otherwise the reply, with no regrets, goes from the default email ID - xyz at apple,.com
In outlook express I believe this was taken care of automatically
Hope I am able to convey my question better.
THANKS & BEST REGARDS
