Good morning,
I have problems with this option.
Everything goes ok until I try to use Bulk Reply. In this case, it uses the default account to reply the first mail, but for the rest uses the reception account .
I am using Outlook 2010.
Can you help me? do I have to do anything else?
Thank you in advance
