How to send email force fully using a default account in outlook.

Problem:

How to send email force fully using a default account in outlook.

Solution:

People who use multiple accounts and frequently (accidentally) send using the wrong account, especially if they are sending sensitive documents, as it will almost eliminate accidentally sending email from the wrong account.

In Outlook 2010, the registry key is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\outlook\options
Value Name: ForceAccountSelection
Value type: REG_DWORD: 1 for force, 0 to disable.


In Outlook 2013, the registry key is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\outlook\options
Value Name: ForceAccountSelection
Value type: REG_DWORD: 1 for force, 0 to disable.


Notes: You need to create the path if it does not exist.
The value type is the same for both 32-bit and 64-bit Outlook.
