    "Outlook 2010 SP1 can be set to always use the default sending account." How do I do this? I don't see an option for it anywhere.

    If you have multiple accounts set up in Outlook the SP1 update includes the ability to configure Outlook to always use the default sending account. Pre-SP1 Outlook would always default to sending a reply message with the account that received the message.  So if you received the message on Account B but wanted to send your reply from Account A you would have to remember to change your sending account each time. With SP1 you can tell Outlook to always default to sending from Account A, even if you're replying to a message received on Account B. That's handy for people transitioning to new e-mail addresses who are temporarily receiving mail on both the old and new accounts and want to always reply from the new account.
