How to Add Reply-To Email Address in Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010 and Receive Replies to Email in a Different Email Address

Reply-To address is used when you want the replies to your emails to be delivered to a different email address than the one you send the email from. For example, if I send an email from sarayoo@ domain.com to someone@ gmail.com. When someone@ gmail.com replies to my email, I want the reply to be delivered in someone-else@ domain.com and NOT sarayoo@ domain.com.

In this article, I will show you how you can configure a reply-to email address in Microsoft Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Outlook 2010.
