The default mailbox is a POP account There is an Exchange account in the profile as well for All messages are checked when they arrive by rule and messages sent to the account are moved to This is the desired rule set. We opted to do a move by rule not a forward by rule for various different reasons. The problem is that when using the inbox of and doing a forward occasionally the from address will be If the email resides in the inbox of I would like the from address on a forward to always be Is there some example of VBA I might implement to accomplish this? Is there an easier way to accomplish this? Can this be done by rule?

  • It sounds like the sending account for messages that are forwarded change unexpectedly occasionally, and this sending account is either the default Exchange account or the POP account.  If that is true, I can't explain why that is happening.

    In VBA, you can change the sending account by setting the MailItem.SendUsingAccount property.  However, to use code you'd either have to use a script with the rule, or code the entire rule process manually.  See here for some options:
