I am using Outlook express v6, with a few different addresses. When I used to open "Compose message", The window opened showing the From, To, CC, BCC and Subject options. I now find that the "From" option has disappeared.
As I found this very useful, can anyone tell me how to get this back please?
If you have more than one address in OE6 then the first one added will be the default unless changed by the user. The fact that you have more than one address should automatically make the From line display - when looking under Tools/Accounts/Mail do you definitely have several active accounts listed?
You say you go to Tools/Accounts/Options. When you go to Tools/Accounts you should then be on the Mail tab listing all your Accounts.
Are you saying that under "Type" they all have the word Default in brackets? If so then this defies logic. All I can suggest is highlight the account you wish to be the default and then click the Set as Default button - and see what happens.
I think I have added the addresses wrongly somehow, I have just addded a new address and the default option is still open, with the original as default, so I am going to remove the other addres and re enter them, I'll come back and let you know, but thanks for the nudge.
