This code does not work if you have multiple Exchange accounts defined in your profile - pointing to different exchange servers.

In that case you need a variation on this code from Microsoft.

Hi, the "VBA: always send a new email from specific account." does not work. If you want to send email from Excel, you have to change Outlook settings. Outlook - File - Account settings. Here you have to prioritise different email and different datafiles you have access to besides your usual account (email). This will work even if Outlook is closed then. (W10, O365)
