Replies have wrong email address

I have three email addresses. No matter what address email comes to, when I
press reply, Windows Mail always defaults to one particular email address, no
matter which address the email came to.

I have looked for some default settin that is causing this, but no luck.

Any suggestions?

When doing a reply, Windows Mail normally chooses the account
that originally downloaded that message. Sometimes the account
information is missing, in which case WM uses the default account.
To monitor the possibility of missing account info, you need to
display the Account column. Right-click on any column header in the
message list, select Columns, and the rest is obvious.

Also, which antivirus are you running? Some are known to strip the
message account info.

Since your problem is the same, the solution is the same.

First admit that the problem is not the same problem. Often the reason
people say they are having the same problem is so that they don't have to
invest the time to adequately describe their problem.

Second, since the problem is not the same, you need to create a new thread
(discussion / question) for your problem. In that, describe the problem as
fully and accurately as possible; especially by including the complete and
accurate error message(s), except omit the part of email addresses that
precede the @.

When you do a reply, or forward, or new mail for that matter, click in the
FROM: line and you will get a list of all of your accounts and can pick the
one you want to send from. It was probably done this way on purpose since
all mail goes to one inbox from all accounts (the default address might not
be the one it came in under). But just because you received it into one
account doesn't mean you want to - or have to respond from that account . .
.. . they gave you free will, non-committed to the default. It's not that
hard, just takes 2 clicks . . . . .

Admit it - the software no longer works correctly - it did before!
without all the clicks.
NOTHING else has changed.

All mud slinging aside....if you click 'reply' to a message recieved on generic@generic.com, the application 'should' reply 'from' generic@generic.com by default. You should not have to select a 'reply from' address unless you wish to change it from what it was received on. I also have the same problem, and that's why I'm reading these posts......
