I am trialling Microsoft Exchange as a way to keep my email synced through all my devices. I have numerous Macs, PCs, iPads etc.


I have two email accounts currently linked to my Exchange account.


On my Windows 8 PC using Outlook 2013 I can pick which of these account an email is "sent from". However, on Outlook 2011 for Mac I can't. I don't  want the email to look like it came from my .onmicrosoft address. If it's a work email I want it to come from my work address and personal from personal.


Does anyone else have this issue or have a solution?


Is Apple's own Mail software better at dealing with this?





Outlook for Mac 2011, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    You don't see a pulldown in the From field showing the two accounts when you compose a new message in Outlook 2011?

    If not, that's an issue best taken up with Microsoft Support.


    Mail in Mac OS X has a similar "from" pulldown you use to choose the account from which the message should be sent. I haven't tried it with two Exchange accounts, only with one Exchange account and three POP accounts, but I don't see any reason why it would work with two Exchange accoints.
