Always use default account when forwarding emails in Outlook

In general, when we forward an email in Outlook, it will automatically use the email account that has received this email to forward it. And if forwarding multiple emails in bulk, it will use the email account based on the currently active folder. Sometimes, we might have added multiple email accounts in Outlook, and it will be chaotic to manage these forwarding emails. Here, I recommend the Use the default account to forward messages feature, provided by Kutools for Outlook, to force forwarding any emails with the default email account.

When you are forwarding an email, it will be forwarded with the default email account, regardless of the email account that this email arrived at. When you are forwarding multiple emails in bulk, they will be forwarded with the default email account.


Notes

1. You can easily view or change the default email account in Outlook as follows:

(1) Click File > Info > Account Settings > Account Settings to open the Account Settings dialog.

(2) In the Account Settings dialog, enable the E-mail tab, and:

  1. You will see the default email account is marked with icon ;

2. If you change the default email account in Outlook, this Use the default account to forward messages option cannot recognize the new email account until restarting Outlook.

3. Even if you have enabled the Use the default account to forward messages option, the Bulk Forward (one feature of Kutools for Outlook, click to view) will forward multiple emails separately with the email account based on the active mail folder.
