One benefit of using Microsoft Outlook as your business’ email client is that you can read, send and organize multiple email accounts within the same program. Although Outlook automatically uses the first email account you added as the default, you can modify this setting to make any account –including your Hotmail email — the primary account, so that when you click an email address hyperlink or click the New Email button, for example, your Hotmail address will automatically appear in the From field.
Start Outlook. Click on the “File” tab and click “Info” in the left pane.
Click the “Account Settings” button and select “Account Settings.”
Click on the Hotmail account that you want to use as the primary email account under the Name heading.
Click the “Set as Default” button on the toolbar. Click the “Close” button to close the Account Settings window.
