    Does this only work for IMAP/POP? Testing with Exchange/O365 doesn't seem to be working.

    The VBA code doesn't work. I have Outlook 2010 and the default account is an Exchange account. The behavior of Outlook when replying stays the same - reply goes from the account which received a message.
