SkyHi @ Monday, April 16, 2012
Sometimes you might want send email from one account (i.e. your personal account) but want any replies from your recipients to go to another account (i.e. your business account), vice versa.
This is how you would do it on an instance by instance basis.
  1. Launch Outlook 2010.
  2. From the Home tab of the top ribbon, click the New E-mailbutton.
  3. In the New E-mail window, click the Options tab.
  4. On the Options  ribbon, click Direct Replies To to bring up the Properties dialog.
  5. Under Delivery options, make sure the Have replies sent to: checkbox is checked.Specify the email address where you want your replies to be sent to.  (You can also click theSelect Names… button to select from your contact list.)
You are done!  Now send yourself a test message.  When you receive the test message, hit reply to confirm it is showing the proper alternate Reply-To email address.
Now you know how to change the Reply-To Email Address on an instance by instance basis.
