Windows 7: Making outlook use default account to send whether new email or reply

Making outlook use default account to send whether new email or reply

Funny thing, but when you choose a default account outlook is supposed to use that one as the default send account. So you compose a new mail and it should use that account as the from address. But it doesn't always work. Yes, i know u can CHOOSE any account by clicking on the "from" button and picking one from the drop down menu. But i don't want to have to keep doing that. I finally got it to work with a reg hack i found when googling the issue. Now when i compose new mail it uses account #1.

However, if someone sends me a email to my account #2, when i reply it uses account #2 to send from. Is there any way i can make outlook use account #1 for all email i send whether they are new emails or replies no matter what account hey were sent to?

Want to send an attachment on an email reply
I cannot see how to do this. Yes, I can right-click a file and choose to email it but it always goes to a new email, not to the one I'm replying to. I can work around it with the copy and paste routine. That sends the file as a picture on the email - not as an attachment.
