Outlook XP / Outlook 2003 beta problems...with Exchange 2003
I have the same problem in both applications (outlook XP/2003 beta).
I have two E-mail accounts.
1. is an exchange account (current set as default)
2. a private email account
when I send internal mails (in the office) outlook use the exchange server...as I set (that is OK!).
but when I will send an external email (for example to firstname.lastname@example.org )
Outlook use also the exchange server to send the email and I get an error message.
The only possibility to send external mails is for me to set the email account by hand for every
The proble doesn't exist with outlook 2000.
Outlook 2000 automatically use the second email account when it see that the mail must
be send to an extrenal account.
How can I set Outlook XP / Outlook 2003 beta to do the same as Outlook 2000?

This may be a problem with the BETA software. The full Office 2k3 is available to MSDN subscribers and was released to manufacturers last week. So it should be on the shelves soon enough.
That may solve this issue. Beta software is known to have bugs and issues like this. MS may have fixed it in the final release.

Few hours ago I download "Office Professional Enterprise Edition 2003" from the MSDN Subscriber site.
and it is the same issue in the final version too.

In outlook express it really is simple.
You create the mail, then you select from the drop down menu which account you would like to use.
As for outlook, I am not sure if it is the same.. but it should be similar.
in outlook 2003, I just tried it, and right next to the SEND button, you'll see the ACCOUNTS button, after you have clicked the new mail button.
Then from the drop down menu select the account you would like to use as your sender address.

I know that you can choose the email account from the list.
But it must be a possibility that outlook or exchange does it automatically as in outlook 2000.

It does it automatically to your default account.
If your default is the .local account, then that is the one it will automatically choose.

And how I must is set now?

Set your default mail account as firstname.lastname@example.org
And then use your local manually.
