    I regret I didn't understand your last sentence Ken. But to answer your question about forwarding, I had Outlook 2007 setup with basically a single Profile whose inbox was divided into many sub-folders. Some were common such as Purchases, Expenditure, Advertising, Suppliers, Accountancy, Taxes, Customs, Sent items, etc. Others were unique to each company and this is where I risk confusing you...

    You see I run several different companies but they are all subsidiaries of one main one. What they have in common is I am the owner so purchases and expenditure should not be separated between them as a single tax declaration is made for all in my name. Nonetheless, I had sub-folders for each company under which were further sub-folders for items that had to be kept separate, i.e. Sales, Info requests, Warranty claims, Testimonials, Marketing, etc.

    My goal was to get ALL mail into the one inbox, read and deal with it, then file it in its respective folder. The last thing I need is a load of separate accounts each with its own inbox and duplicate folders, hence getting each address to forward to one of 2 addresses on my ISP's service. You might be wondering "Why 2 addresses?" This was so that personal mails would go to one address while business mails would go to the other.

    Like I said, Outlook 2016 won't allow me to do that and this morning I find myself in a rather embarrassing position because I have to confirm delivery of a product from an address that has absolutely nothing to do with the company the customer purchased from. To make matters worse, there is a strong possibility that the customer will designate the confirmation mail as spam because he won't recognize the sender.

    If I could go back to Outlook 2007 I would but it won't work with Windows 10 as it was designed before scaling and HTML5 were released.

    I have attached an example of what I need to achieve and although Outlook 2016 will permit that, it will only allow it for one single address using orange.fr to send mail through. Outlook 2007 allowed an unlimited amount of addresses using the same sending address (note the difference between sending address and sender/reply to addresses.

    Thanks for explaining.

    I guess where I was going was having the seperate accounts for each company and then if you want to keep some combined you would move them in your Personal folders.

    This is what I do but my individual account, mine use IMAP. When mail comes in I respond from that account or file in sub folders for the account, being IMAP they replicate to server. When an item comes in that I want for multiple resaons I move to my Personal folders, those that are part of pst file extension.

    My last sentence in previous post. I'm pretty sure you can set outlook up to always respond from an account or from the account you are in.

    I hope the gang at Slipstick can help.

    Yes, please post back when you get a solution.

    I also think my way would work but you would have to move to IMAP so each account has folders and sub folders with your common stuff being kept in your personal folders on your computer.

    I would be interested in seeing solution. Good luck.

    IMAP is an excellent solution for those who need a "cloud" type of solution for mail storage but I get so much mail, much of it with hefty attachments, that it would cost me an arm and a leg in storage fees. POP may be less secure however I can automatically delete all mails from my ISP's server after they are downloaded, after which I backup the pst files to an external drive and to one of my own servers.

    Very true and as you have a specific ISP you are bound to their rate plans.
