    My office is technologically challenged, so in order to get my work email on my phone, I've always had to use a work-around i.e. set up auto forwarding to a different but dedicated account and change that email account's reply to address to my work email address. For most purposes, it looks as if I sent the email from my work address.

    Anyway, I haven't been able to figure out how to change the "reply to" address for one of my email accounts on my phone. I'd rather any replies to work emails I send from my phone go to my work address. Does anyone know how to do this?

    sadly i think the only way to reply to a different e-mail is by doing * FORWARD *

    if you have your e-mail set up as a contact in your phone you simply have to put in the first letter of your e-mail and the phone will pop up a DROP DOWN menu with all possible e-mails starting with that letter.

    thats what Ive been doing to forward e-mails to my work e-mail. ( im sorta in the same boat as you )

    Wow! I figured out a better way. I could never get this to work on my BB, so I assumed it would not work on WP (since BBs are held out as the best in email), but I got my new Focus Flash to get it to work directly with my office email.

    Now I don't even need a dedicated address for that purpose!!!

    His way was to simply to add his e-mail in WP7.

    If you can't also do it, then you're out of luck.

    Thanks, but I thought there was a way to actually change the 'reply to' address from a Hotmail account on the device itself. But it seems that there isn't which is a let down.
