    SOLVED: Replies to emails from MS account go to my other

    OK, I'm stumped.

    My primary MS account is It has an alias When I send email, the sender is I use this account for all my email and is my sign in for all my Windows machines and Windows Phone.

    I have a 2nd MS account, I use this just for email and mainly for bills and notices.

    I use web access for email and can sign in to either account and email from either. It had been working fine for years. About a month ago, in the course of changing passwords, I did something. Now, replies to emails I send from started going to Doesn't matter if I use PC or WP. Doesn't matter if I reply to an email received originally on John@JohnsDomain, if I send out an email from John@JohnsDomain, any reply will go to John@outlook.

    Anybody know this problem or have any ideas? TIA

    Problem is solved.

    Thanks @wullail, attaching the outgoing header enabled me to see the reply to address and realize it could be set to the 2nd account. I finally found where to change it, and there was the 2nd address.
