Direct Reply To Different Email Address In Outlook 2010


It is often the case that you want to receive replies to your emails on a different email address than that from which you originally sent the email; in such a scenario we will just make the appropriate settings in Outlook.

First of all launch Outlook and hit the New Message option. Once the New Email message window is opened, click the Options tab and then Hit the Direct Replies To option under the More Options Section.

    Is it possible to direct replies to a different address when using Outlook Web Access?

    • Not in Outlook Web Access (OWA). At least not in OWA 2003 or 2007.

    Can this be done on a global basis? i.e. not for each individual email sent? Using Outlook 2003.
