E-mail replies go to wrong identity

  Oak 14:25 02 Dec 2005

I have set up two identities in Outlook Express one for HOME and one for WORK. When I send an e-mail from WORK the reply is received in the HOME Inbox. I feel I am missing something really simple. I can forward messages from HOME to WORK but this defeats the purpose of setting up the two identities. Any help appreciated.

Rules? One in the Work identity `If TO address = home address, do not download from the server` and the equivalent in the Home identity?

Thanks skyver I ahve only just been able to test your suggestion due to lack of WORK mail. Sorry to say it did not work. I wonder if the problem iss occurring because my WORK correspondents are using the Reply button to respond to my queries instead of creating a new message. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

Click on tools > acounts select your work account click on properties and make sure the reply address on the general tab is correct

As I thought something simple (and stupid)MrMoz thanks for leading me to the problem. It was not the reply address which was wrong but the e-mail address used was the same for HOME and WORK. Therefore when anyone responded to my work mail using the reply button the replies went to my HOME inbox. Thanks to all who tried to help.
